MINOCQUA - It's the fifth year for the ski-snowshoe event.
The event is a fundraiser for both the Minocqua J1 school, and Arbor Vitae-Woodruff school. More than 350 people went this Saturday.
Event organizer Judy Jurries says that's a lot more than last year.
"I know when I looked at preregistration over 60 % of people were from out of the area. So we're definitely starting to get a lot of recognition from communities much beyond the Northwoods," said Jurries.
The event had a 5K loop, and a 2K kid's loop. People got to enjoy a bonfire, wish lanterns, music, and food and concessions.
"Once they get out here, they just get so excited. Once they see the luminaries, we always put one of the wish lanterns up 10-15 minutes into the events," said Jurries. "People look up, and they're like 'oh, this is so cool'. It's a great way to enjoy the Northwoods weather, what else are you going to do?"
The loop has something for all generations.
Organizers spend about nine months planning the event. They say they're excited to start planning for next year.
