Cool weather doesn't stop Northwoods summer kickoff event

Posted:
RHINELANDER, Wis. (WAOW) -

The second annual summer kickoff event in Rhinelander brought in dozens of community members.

Hoola hoops, tunes from different eras, and the smells of a hog roast filled North Pelham Street next to the Rhinelander Masonic Temple.

Organizers say it's a great way just to start kicking off our summer.

"The Northwoods is really really reliant on travel tourism," said Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Maggie Steffen. "And we all had a long winter, so between bringing in the tourists and just ready for summer to start, we thought it was a great event to hold."
