48th Annual Wausau Fun Day and Possum Festival

Published: June 19th, 2016, 1:04 pm

Possum Day 2010 King & Queen

Great Family Fun All Day Long!

Beginning with a pancake breakfast at 7AM and the annual ‘Possum Trot’ 5k Run, locals and visitors alike enjoy a full day of festivities, including the annual Possum Parade, Possum Auction and culminating at 8PM with an old-fashioned square dance.

The square dance and other ‘retro’ aspects of the festival, including cross-cut saw contests, sack races and greasy pole contests, are indicative of a regional trend toward more family-friendly, heritage amusement.
