Coloma Chicken Chew to be bigger and better

The Coloma Chicken Chew is almost here and the 46th annual event will be bigger and better than ever. The event is to be held June 22, 23, and 24. The sign-up for volleyball, cornhole, baseball, and the horseshoe tournaments are underway. Tickets are on sale for the dinners: Friday night, fish; Saturday night ribs by Dinks; and, the famous Sunday Chicken BBQ. Tickets are available at the Coloma Hotel or from Coloma Lions members. There are two big raffles to support the fireworks, which are available from members and area businesses. This year Badgerland Midways will host a carnival for children, and there will be fireworks at dusk on Saturday. Two popular bands will play: Spicy Tie on Friday and Road Trip on Saturday.   There is something for everyone: sports, face painting, bingo, water fights, food, drink, chicken coop game, a playground, and more. Friday’s activities are sponsored by Coloma’s Fire Department and Saturday and Sunday’s activities by the Coloma Lions Club.
