Only 10 Days To Sputnikfest!

And also - only 10 days until Lobsterfest!  If  you are planning on attending the other annual Manitowoc festival that is taking place on September 7 - there will again this year be a convenient FREE shuttle bus that will provide transportation between that event and Sputnikfest.  Watch for the signs - and see you on September 7!

Only 13 Days Until Sputnikfest!

Add caption
I never saw a Purple Cow,
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.

But if to see a Sputnik Cow
Had been your sacred quest -
You have a chance to see one now -
Out front at Cedar Crest!

Returning this year for Sputnikfest - the Cedar Crest Cow decked out in Sputnik finery!  The large fiberglass bovine was decorated for Sputnikfest a few years back, but she sat out the last couple years.  But due to the generosity of the people at Cedar Crest Ice Cream in Manitowoc, the Cedar Crest Cow will once again be showing her Sputnik Spirit. 

 Here are a few photos of the work in progress from this past week.  See the finished product when you visit this year for Sputnikfest - the Cedar Crest Dairy and Ice Cream Parlor is  just a little south of the museum at 2000 South 10th Street.  See the Sputnik Cow - get some photos - and, hey - buy some ice cream while you are there!

Only 20 Days Until Sputnikfest!

And making an appearance this year at Sputnikfest - yes!  The ASTRO BABES!  The Astro Babes are Lynn and Amy - "two women interesting in all things related to astronomy and space" - and that, of course, includes Sputnikfest.  The Astro Babes will be on site at Sputnikfest sharing their astronomy expertise from 4 to 7PM!  Here is a link to their website.  See the Astro Babes - and all the other Spuntikfest fun and frivolity - on September 7 in Manitowoc.  Planet Terry

Only 27 Days Until Sputnikfest!

It is Coming!  And it will be bigger and better and wackier and tackier than ever!  More fun, more to do - more food - the Star Wars characters - DON'T MISS IT!

The expanded food offerings will include:
* A Cosmic Corn Roast sponsored by Boy Scout Troop 939
* and ALIEN PIZZA by Wildfire Pizza Company
Plus the usual popcorn, cotton candy, burgers, barbecue, mini-donuts - and even egg-rolls!

Consume Mass Quantities!

Miss Space Debris made her final parade appearance at the Annual Valders Lions Picnic Parade - see photos below. 

Great to watch the reactions of the crowd as the convertible drives by with Miss Space Debris in the back.
Check back for more detail between now and then - and BE THERE on September 7 - you don't want to miss it!  Planet Terry
