EAGLE RIVER - Eagle River hosted its 36th annual Cranberry Fest during October's first weekend.
Organizers say the weather this year brought in many more visitors.
"People come to this whether there's good weather of bad weather," said Executive Director of the Eagle River Chamber Kim Emerson. "And with this year being great weather, we had above-average crowds and it was just spectacular. We're so happy about that."
By 3 p.m. Saturday, the World's Largest Cranberry Cheesecake had already been devoured. Sales of slices go towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin.
Organizers said they also almost sold out of cranberries, but they said they would still have more to sell on Sunday.
There were also dozens of craft vendors, food and wine and cranberry marsh tours.
