The 4th of July brings thousands to the city's mile-long beach to enjoy the water, fun and free fireworks show. In August, the city hosts WE Fest, the world's largest outdoor country music festival. The fall and winter bring ice fishing, snowmobiling, hunting, cross country skiing and downhill skiing.
