Today marks the first day of Paperfest, a three-day summer festival that takes place in Kimberly, WI from July 18-20.

Paperfest will kick off at Sunset Park. If you’re looking to get out of the house and have a fun-filled day with the family, this is the perfect event for you.

Paperfest will be complete with carnival rides, a hole-in-one golf challenge, and a family tent that will be pitched on Saturday and include lots of age-appropriate activities for the kids. Music will also be a part of the festival and the concerts will be underway later this evening.

Paperfest starts at 5 PM and the musicians will take the stage soon after that.

Dr. Matthew Boots is the marketing director for Paperfest. His father was the person who started the event 31 years ago.

Dr. Boots says, “It’s all about the community and we do what we can do to give back. It takes a big group to do it and do it right.”

Dr. Boots says besides the music, the part of the event he is most looking forward to is the hot air balloon glow.

Paperfest will trek on rain or shine. Admission is free.
