Hodag Country Music Festival is a family affair


Country music once again fills the air in Rhinelander.

For organizer Dawn Eckert, it's all about family.

This is the 36th year for the Hodag Country Music Festival.

 Eckert remembers how it all began. She tells Newsline 9 her parents started the Hodag Country Music Festival with partners 36 years ago.

She says they've owned the property since the early 1960's.

"Since the beginning my parents started it with some partners and the kids we've always just worked it and kind of transitioned into it and organized it," said Eckert.

The event runs through Sunday.
