ST. GERMAIN - A wide open, snow and ice covered lake can mean a fun and fast time on a snowmobile.
People get a chance to find out just how fast their snowmobile can go this weekend.
The 13th Annual St. Germain Snowmobile Radar Run will bring many people to St. Germain.
The event begins Friday on the West Bay of Little St. Germain Lake. Riders can take their sleds out on the ice for a chance to see who has the fastest sled.
On Saturday, the bikini run will raise money for the Pink Ribbon Riders, St.
Germain Fire Department, and the Plum Lake Ambulance. The bikini run raised more than $33,000 last year.
"They've given hundreds of thousands of dollars back to this community. Who hasn't been touched with cancer in their life at some time," said Penny Wiesmann from the St. Germain Area Chamber of Commerce.
The radar run brings people from all over Wisconsin to the St. Germain area. One of the big draws to the weekend is the time trial runs.
"I have to wait for 40-50 snowmobiles to fill up with gas, that's exciting to me. People are coming to our community. They are going to come here and fall in love with it in the winter. They'll want to bring their families back in the summertime," said Wiesmann.
The radar run begins Friday at 11 a.m. The fun continues Saturday morning at 10 a.m. You can contact the chamber for more details.
