Celebrate Labor Day Weekend at the Sheboygan County Fair | Inn on Hillwind

The 2014 Sheboygan County Fair will be taking place from Thursday, August 28th until Monday, September 1st and is the perfect way to bid farewell to the summer season. Given that the Fair will only be taking place for a total of five days, it’s surprising to hear how many great events are packed into what seems like no time at all. However, that just means that you will never be at a loss for fun and exciting things to explore during your trip out!

Amongst a few of a new things that Fair-goers can expect to see this year is the World Champion Lumberjill Show, the Amateur Wine and Beer Making Competition and – what we’re most looking forward to – the Extreme Bull Riding & Barrel Racing Competition. Knowing that these are just a few events we’ll see amongst the 16,000 exhibits, games and grandstand shows ahead of us is enough to make anyone want to pack up the car and head to Sheboygan for the last few days of the season!

Located at N4922 Hillwind Road in Plymouth, WI, the Fair is just over five minutes away – you couldn’t ask for better accommodations!

The 18th Annual Sheboygan Area Garden Walk is Coming Soon!

Can you believe that we’re already in the 18th year of the Sheboygan Area Garden Walk? Here at Inn on Hillwind, we’ll be the first to tell you that there are so many beautiful gardens to see while exploring the town. Just take a walk through the Sheboygan area and you’ll be able to see for yourself! But have you ever wished that you could get a closer look at some of the gardens you come across? Ever wonder if there are any other hidden gems nearby that you just haven’t discovered yet? Well now’s your chance!

The 18th Annual Sheboygan Area Garden Walk is Coming Soon! | Inn on Hillwind

The Sheboygan Garden Walk is quickly approaching, taking place on Saturday, July 12, 2014 from 9am to 4pm. The cost of participating in the walk is a mere $10 and will include access to nine different private gardens throughout the area.

Hosted by the Ivy League and the Lakeshore Garden Club, this event was first brought about in an effort to stimulating interest in the art of gardening, landscape design and home/civic beautification. Additionally, both groups hope that with events like this one, more people will become aware of the importance of protecting and conserving natural resources, wildlife and horticulture.  

The proceeds for the walk go to benefit a number of local non-profit organizations with a “gardening connection.” In the past 16 years alone, the walk has been able to raise nearly $100,000 for these organizations and both Ivy League and the Lakeshore Garden Club have high hopes that this year will be just as much of a success as every other year.

Rain or shine, the Sheboygan Area Garden Walk will take place in just a week and a half and we hope to see you there! If you’re planning to travel in from out of town, don’t forget to book your stay with us here at our bed and breakfast hotel, located at N4922 Hillwind Road in Plymouth, WI.
