Welcome to the 

City of Rice Lake, Wisconsin
2012 Quasquicentennial Site!
125th Birthday Celebration for 125 Days
April 1 - August 4, 2012
The 125-Day Quasquicentennial celebration has drawn to a close.  Hundreds of people participated in the events.  

On August 4th, many people watched the unique parade of about 90 units strolling through history and over 2,000 people enjoyed post-parade activities, entertainment, memorabilia display, food, fellowship and fun at the Barron County Fairgrounds.  Kids and adults of all ages enjoyed a fantastic day topped of with one of the most exciting firework displays we have seen in some time.

A sincere thank you is extended to the sponsors and contributors that helped make the celebration a huge success.  As Rice Lake enters into its 125 year, it is reassuring to know that the Rice Lake business community is proud of the community it serves.  Thank you for your support!
This 125-Day "Good Times" celebration will be an event to remember - don't miss the opportunities to be part of the celebration!

Thank you to the many generous Quasquicentennial sponsors.
