- Nearly 200 vendors will make their way to Crandon this weekend for the annual Kentuck Day Festival.
Among them is a former nationally ranked snow-cross racer turned peanut brittle chef.
22-year-old Stephanie Schmidt used to race snowmobiles competitively.
Now, she uses ingredients like sugar and peanuts to land her in the winner's circle.
"The younger generation doesn't know what it is and it's really good," said Schmidt. "It's a shame that people don't know what it is and it's really fun to make."
She has spent the last couple of days preparing her famous peanut brittle to sell at the festival.
At last year's festival, she nearly ran out within the first few hours and had to make about 90lbs total in just one day.
"We're preparing way more than we did last year and I hope to have like 150 to 200 bags ready to go," said Schmidt.
All the money Stephanie makes from the peanut brittle goes towards her history graduate degree at UW-Milwaukee.
Stephanie is hoping to make nearly $700 from sales Saturday.
The Kentuck Day Festival will take place Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
