Outdoors with Lauren: 525 to host new event this summer

Posted:
One of the many great things about Wausau is that it continues to bring new things to the area.  On this week's Outdoors with Lauren, The 525 track which normally a winter venue, transforms for its first ever tractor pull this August 15-17.

Ralph Merwin, who is president and owner of the Wausau 525, says, "We have a snowmobile race every year, but this August we're going to have an event with the Wisconsin tractor pullers."

The tractor pulls are just the beginning of entertainment for spectators, "We're going to have vendors in our building so there will be beer craftors, cheese, wine and meats and so on. That way people who come to the event can have a taste of Wisconsin"
Cara Spatz says, "Friday night we are going to have a band and it's goigoing to warm the stage for Vick Ferrari and we're hoping for great weather, a great crowd and there will be plenty of space for everyone to party."

All the proceeds go to charity, "Knowing that all the final proceeds go to helping out children in the area fighting terminal illnesses, high school scholarships and other like minded charities."
