Moose Madness Festival encourages families to unplug and play. Reconnect by doing the planned activities, enjoying the outdoors or learning a few facts about our celebrated mascot. Moosey memories are waiting to be made! Throughout Moose Madness weekend, there are events for everyone. Activities range from the athletic to the artistic with the weekend centered on earning and spending “moose bucks.” Kiddos can earn moose bucks by participating in scavenger hunts, races, and arts activities all around town. Moose bucks can then be spent on prizes at Moose Headquarters aka Grandma Ray’s. In addition to the activities at Moose Headquarters there are fun things to do all around town! 

To find a guide to all the events for the weekend, follow this link to the visit cook county website.
