Septemberfest is a smash!

Despite a dreary start, the fifth-annual Septemberfest celebration returned strong last week Saturday in downtown Ripon.

“It was the best yet,” Ripon Area Chamber of Commerce executive director Paula Price said. “Attendance was up, chamber member sponsorship was even better than in the past, and community participation has grown each year.” 

New for 2011 were a pair of competitions: cornhole and a pumpkin weigh-off.

“The new activities we added this year ... were enthusiastically received,” Price said. “Returning favorites like the car show, Taste of Ripon, the utterly awesome Lip-Sync Competition, and the Beautiful Baby Contest are still winners. And, of course, the band, Mostly Water, was outstanding.”

An out-of-area duo took the win in the cornhole tourney. Winning first place was a team called “Stumble Inn Boys,” otherwise known as Cal Korman of Oshkosh and Scott Chartier of Neshkoro.

Coming in just behind them were a pair of local duos: “Team Rich” (Randy Rich and Brittany Rich of Ripon in second place) and “Bag for More” (Henny Schetzinger and Brandon Mumm of Ripon in third).

Meanwhile, the Dog Walk also found success.

“We’re still totalling the money but I think we raised more than $15,000 at this event — a record breaker,” said Tanya Schwartz-Roeper, organizer of the walk that benefitted the Green Lake Area Animal Shelter.
