Best Sports/Recreation Event (Non-Run/Walk)

1st Place: Northern Wisconsin State Fair
2nd Place: FATFAR
3rd Place: Eau Claire Express 4th of July


If you’re into deep-fried fair food, rides that make you fear for your life, and overall great entertainment, you’ll have the time of your life at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair in Chippewa Falls, which was voted the Valley’s No. 1 recreational event. With deep-fried food around every corner, piglet races, and a friggin’ LLAMA COSTUME SHOW, you can’t go wrong by attending this annual fair. You can’t be a true Chippewa Vallian and not know about the annual Chippewa River tubing extravaganza known as FATFAR, which took second place. There’s no better recipe for summer fun than floating down the river with a cold brewski in your hand, surrounded by all your favorite friends. Coming in third is the Eau Claire Express Fourth of July event. Watching the Express play at Eau Claire’s Carson Park is always a great time, but throw fireworks into the mix after the baseball game and things are going to get really crazy! –Lisa de Felice
