The fun begins at 4:00 p.m. when the staff of the Chippewa Valley Center will be firing up the grill at Irvine Park in Chippewa Falls for a late afternoon picnic for current students, alumni, faculty, staff, friends, and family. http://www.chippewachamber.org/irvine.asp. Have your photo taken with Musko! The picnic kicks off a fun-filled series of events sponsored by the Chippewa Falls Chamber of Commerce as part of Pure Water Days. The Center picnic is free of charge, but registration is required by August 5.
After the picnic, head straight over to the Heyde Center for the Arts to enjoy "Swampgrass Music."
