By:  Discover Dodge Tourism - Juneau, WI

Come to Dodge County on Saturday, October 8 for a day
full of fun for the whole family! Once again, Discover Dodge
Tourism is sponsoring the "Drive-It-Yourself"
Dodge County Fall Farm and Foliage Tour.
It will highlight various attractions and agricultural stops
around Dodge County and provide the opportunity
for participants to have an up-close experience of a
variety of cultural, retail, historical and agricultural
stops. The tour will begin with the first stop and map
pickup at the Black Oak Forge on Hwy 33 between
Beaver Dam and Horicon. Drive-It-Yourself tour maps
will be available at this first stop on the Saturday of the
tour between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and noon. The tour hours are
9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

This all day event is filled with fun activities for all ages.
The tour will have some outstanding stops which will entice
everyone's interest as well as provide an excellent chance to
take in the beautiful autumn landscape of Dodge
County. The first stop will feature a modern day
blacksmith who will give demonstrations. Then
participants can drive into Beaver Dam to the Seippel
Homestead & Center for the Arts to enjoy patriotic
artwork and demonstrations by area artists and the
opportunity for children to paint a pumpkin. The next
tour stop takes you into Fox Lake to their downtown area
where there are interesting shops and a brat fry at the
local American Legion. Next on the tour is the Fox Lake
Historical Society's village to see the buildings and learn
about the history of Fox Lake. After visiting all the stops in
Fox Lake, participants will head to Tom Dooley's Apple
Orchard to pick your own apples and buy other delicious
treats. Their apple pies are said to be the best around!
Next on the map is Marsh Haven, a nature
center located on Horicon Marsh. They will have a nature scavenger
hunt to do as well as their displays at the center. If that isn't enough,
the tour ends at the Rock River Archeology Living
History Days event at the other end of Horicon Marsh!
There you will find a drum circle, atl atl, native
American craft and jewelry vendors, buck skinners
encampment, artifacts to view, food and beverages,
and lots more to see and do.

While at the Living History Days, be sure to go inside the
Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center and visit the
New Explorium. If you run out of time, plan to stay the night
at one of the many inns and hotels in Dodge County. There are
other activities happening in Dodge County over the weekend too.
