Windsor Harvest Picnic is Almost Here! Come and Explore!
It’s almost here! Illinois’s longest running festival, celebrating 120 years this coming weekend! The Windsor Harvest Picnic Committee’s dedicated volunteers have been working hard all year to bring you the best. There will be tasty treats, family friendly events including a carnival provided by Fountain City Amusements, and high class musical entertainment! This year’s lineup includes: Firebox, Sampson Jones Gang, Phil Dirt, and Shenandoah! To see the entire schedule for the Windsor Harvest Picnic go to http://lakeshelbyville.com/events/windsor.htm.
Windsor is full of rich history, and members of the community group WHAT, Windsor Happenings Around Town, have collected historical information and placed it in a brochure for your convenience. While in the area, check out the Windsor Historical Walking Tour to get a glimpse of the past.
After exploring the town and working up an appetite, visit the Windsor Food Center to find a great selection of nourishment to satisfy all of your taste buds. And, if looking to cool down with a new fun flavor of soda, make Uptown Variety your next stop! You can find jelly belly sodas, delicious sandwiches, penny candy, and other fun items!
Another great part of Windsor is its access to Lake Shelbyville from Wolf Creek State Park. I highly recommend the Fox Trail for an afternoon hike with sites that overlook the lake. If you would rather get in the water, there is a nice sandy beach in the park, so bring out your floatables and sunscreen and enjoy the weather! And, if you enjoy boating, the boat ramp is easily accessible further into the park. On your way to Wolf Creek State Park, don’t miss the goat tower farm where you can find the tallest goat tower around! The owners are very friendly and enjoy having visitors.
