MINOCQUA (WAOW) -
Hundreds of people in the Northwoods got a taste of what the area has to offer.
The 7th annual "Taste of the North" was at The Waters of Minocqua Thursday. About 30 businesses participated and 350 people attended. Minocqua Chamber of Commerce leaders say the Spring kickoff is a way to get out of the box and try new things.
"It gives everyone a chance to sample something that you were a little bit, maybe nervous to try off the menu. You can come here and give it a try and see if you like it."
Proceeds from the event go to scholarship funds and local organizations.
