The Lakes & Leaves bike ride, AVA art show opening, and Fest-fall in Lakewood will fill what is shaping up to be a very pleasant autumn weekend in the northwoods.

After a rather gloomy week, the weather is expected to be sunny and comfortable for much of the weekend and into next week, making it a great time to get out and enjoy the season.

A look at events, featuring Antigo Daily Journal advertisers, follows:

RENDEZVOUS

Friday is reserved for local schools, so stop by next weekend and enjoy crafts and food along with vendors.

The focus will be on the 1790 to 1850 time period. There will be demonstrations and re-enactments pertaining to trapping and trading of pelts, food and tools between the Ojibwe tribes and European settlers, including the Sokoagon tradition of harvesting rice in Mole Lake.

There will be contests for flint and steel fire-starting, black powder shooting, primitive archery, hawk and knife throwing and wood fire cooking along with traditional Native American games for children and adults.

Admission is free. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Creative vendors set up outside the various shops to sell their hand made items such as rugs, wood signs, wire sculpture, paintings, photos, jewelry, ceramics, jams, local honey, mittens and much, much more. Other area non-profit groups are given free booth locations to sell food at the event.
