Antigo Bakery cookies to add to festive setting at Christmas events
space
The smell of chili won’t be the only delicious aroma wafting off Fifth Avenue on Wednesday.

Mike and Sheila Pavek of Antigo have once again donated the cookie dough for the Christmas Chili Cook-off Wednesday. It will be baked in big outdoor oven by Salvation Army volunteers and served to everyone donating to the kettle campaign.

This is the ninth year the Paveks have donated the cookie fixin’s, which always draw a crowd to the Salvation Army tent throughout the afternoon.

The Paveks said they take pride that their cookie dough raises between $600 and $1,000 every year toward the goal of $100,000 for emergency needs in Langlade County.

Bill Kelly, Salvation Army Volunteer coordinator emphasizes that Antigo Bakery cookies are a special draw, along with hot chocolate and Optimist Cheese Curds on the corner of Clermont and Fifth Avenue. Serving starts shortly after noon on Wednesday.

When businesses like Antigo Bakery contribute what they do best, everyone is a winner, Kelly said.

Wednesday opens the holiday in Antigo, with a day full of activities.

The morning begins with the 20th annual chili cook-off, with chefs on the street starting at 8 a.m. Prizes will be awarded in traditional and roughneck divisions. Chili sampling will begin at 5:30 p.m.

At 6 p.m. join Of Chorus! and Mayor Bill Brandt at the Yesterdays Sign Park for the lighting of the community tree and caroling.

After the chili roasters are emptied and the tree is lit, the 2017 community Christmas parade will wind down Fifth Avenue beginning at 6:30 p.m. Theme is Christmas Future and there will be a mix of civic, business, family and club entries. The Antigo High School Band will perform and will also give a holiday concert in the firehouse afterwards.

The parade will mark Santa’s official arrival to town. He will ride in a place of honor to conclude the procession.

Another holiday tradition continues with the red kettle campaign. Many more bell ringers are needed between now and Christmas Eve to raise funds needed in Langlade County for emergency needs. Bell ringers not only offer the gift of time, they provide an opportunity for everyone, including people who receive assistance to enhance the spirit of giving during the Christmas Season.

To volunteer as a bell ringer, go to www.salanglade.org and sign up directly or call Kelly at 715-623-7838 to ring the bell at Fleet Farm, Walmart, Pick n Save, Walgreens, Lakeside or Gilbert Sentry.
