For the City Times
In celebration of Father’s Day, all fathers who attend The 26th Annual Energy Fair on June 21 with their children will receive free admission.
Why bring the whole family to Central Wisconsin? Whether it’s seeing and touching live frogs, a puppet show explaining climate change, or an active sing and dance along with Tom Pease and David Stokes, there is something for every age. As an added bonus, kids 12 and under get in free.

In between educational workshops, refuel dad with a grilled, Organic Prairie brat or barbeque pulled pork sandwich washed down with a solar brewed beer from Central Waters Brewing Co. or an iced Rishi Tea. After a day of learning, take Dad to live music like Baba Ghanooj on Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m. or to enjoy the action-packed Green Mini Demo Derby.
