Destination of the Day: Carp Fest*

Mississippi Valley Traveler

If you’ve tired of spending your New Year’s Eve watching a crystal ball do the same thing it does every year in the same place, maybe you need a change of scenery. How about watching the traditional Dropping of the Carp in Prairie du Chien (Wisconsin)? While it may lack the elegance of the famous Times Square event, it also lacks the huge crowds, so you may actually get to see the fated object drop. While you’re there, you can also watch the annual football game called the Carp Bowl. You can thank me later.
