Beef A Rama PosterBeef-A-Rama

If you’re heading up to Wisconsin this weekend or just looking for something to do, check out the 49th annual fall festival Beef-A-Rama in Minocqua. Live music, hot air balloon rides, fresh food markets, stuff for the kids and of course, lots and lots of beef cooking and eating are scheduled for tonight and tomorrow.

Debuting as Fish-O-Rama in 1964 to celebrate the first day of fishing season, the fest eventually morphed into a beef bash where local merchants prepared roasts to thank local customers and vacationing visitors to the area.

Beef-A-Rama … you know we LOVE that name!
