WABENO - Wabeno prides itself on drawing more and more people to its small community. It's doing things like building new trails and coming up with new events.
This weekend, the town will host the first ever "Wabeno Art and Music Fest". People in Wabeno say they have a unique passion for the arts.
"The Wabeno Art and Music Fest, or WAM Fest, as we call it, is an outgrowth of the various art activities that have been burgeoning here in Wabeno over the last number of years," said Tim Friesen, a coordinator of the event.
WAM Fest has 21 musical acts planned for Saturday and Sunday, ranging from folk to rock.
The Friends of Wabeno and Forest County Economic Development Partnership helped plan it.
The event fits into a larger push to improve Wabeno.
"There's a lot of enthusiasm here to promote Wabeno as a community, as a destination for people to come here," Friesen said.
WAM Fest runs all day Saturday and until 3 o'clock on Sunday in downtown Wabeno.
