TOMAHAWK – The City of Tomahawk Common Council during its Tuesday, March 2 meeting voted unanimously to approve special event permits for the Spring Fling Wine Walk and Music on the River. Both permits had been approved by the city’s Health and Safety Committee before being voted on by the council.
Tomahawk Main Street Inc.’s annual two-day Spring Fling Wine Walk is set to be held Friday, May 7 and Saturday, May 8, 2021. The event will feature a wine walk and art show in downtown Tomahawk from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on May 7, with an estimated 200 people expected to attend. Chalk art and live music may also be featured over the course of the event, according to the permit.
Music on the River, Tomahawk’s weekly summer concert series held in Veterans Memorial Park, is slated for every Wednesday from June 23 to July 28, 2021. According to the permit, each of the six events will be set up at 4 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. Attendance is estimated to be 800 to 1,000 people per concert, and there will be no food or alcohol sales on-site.
Last month, the council approved three permits requested by the Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber’s Arts and Craft Fair is slated for July 3, 2021 at the SARA Park soccer field, the Brat Fry and Bonfire is scheduled for Sept. 16, 2021 at the SARA Park boat landing, and the annual Venison Feed in downtown Tomahawk is set for Nov. 19, 2021.
The approval of the permits indicates the ongoing gradual return to routine following a year that saw numerous events in Tomahawk called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The council’s next meeting is scheduled for April 16, 2021 at 6 p.m.
