Great River Road Festival

In 1938 President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Great River Road along the Mississippi River. The route follows the river for nearly 3,000 miles through 10 states. In 2012 readers of the Huffington Post voted the Wisconsin section of the Great River Road the "Prettiest Drive" in America. Stonefield, one of the Great River Road's interpretive center, will celebrate the history of the roadway with a variety of river-related activities on this day.
