It's been a staple in Cross Plains for the past 35 years; we're talking about Trout Days! Trout Days is a three day event. Friday organizers with the Lion's Club were making brats for the whole community, and then Saturday there will be even more brat stands set up along with garage sales, a bouncy house for kids and of course a fishing contest. The whole event is focused around Black Earth Creek- a world class trout stream.
The whole community comes out to help support this event. Local businesses are involved, as well as the Chamber of Commerce and of course the Lion's Club. Members say they love helping out at this event every year and have come to find their expertise.
"Well I'm the hamburger cooker. I get all the hamburgers cooked!" said Peter Cerniglia. Bob Nelson added, "all of the profits that come from this operation here come back to the community and to Lion's charities."
There will also be a pier dedication as well as stands to register to be an organ donor Saturday at this event. It's completely free! Saturday is the last day so make sure to come on down to Cross Plains. The event goes from 10am until 3pm.
