Moose Madness Activities

Would you like to host an activity for the Moose Madness Family Festival at your store or business? Let me know! I'd love to include you in the 2016 Moose News Tribune Schedule of Events, which will be inserted in the October Northern Wilds. Hosting an activity is a great way to get folks into your location. Activities can be as simple as guessing how many pennies in a jar, or finding 5 moose within the store, etc. Visit Cook County and the Information Center takes care of giving out prizes, you just have to deal with Moose Bucks (the official currency of Moose Madness).  

If you'd like to participate, please let me know details by the end of the week as that is the deadline for the Events Schedule.

Thank you so much!
