Fond du Lac celebrates Walleye Weekend

Posted:

FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) -- Competitive fishing is among the events celebrating walleye in Fond du Lac this weekend.
   The lakeside festival started in 1976 as a way to promote the Lake Winnebago fishery and the Mercury Marine National Walleye Tournament. The three-day festival includes music stages, sporting events, a boat exhibit, an animal show, a run/walk, soccer and basketball tournaments and a variety of food and beverages.
   Organizers say Walleye Weekend attracts more than 100,000 people each year.
