COMBINED LOCKS (NBC 26) — Are you looking for some family-fun this weekend?

The 33rd annual Paperfest presented by Community First Credit Union has moved to Memorial Park in Combined Locks for 2021 to help the Village of Combined Locks celebrate their centennial.

The four day event began on Thursday and ends Sunday.

Admission is free for the family.

Live music and vendors will be on site.

“Paperfest because of the history of the paper mills in this area. Obviously the village of Kimberly no longer has a mill but Combined Locks does, so we’re celebrating that and it’s important to know the history of Northeast Wisconsin,” said Matthew Boots, Paperfest Director.

Proceeds from Paperfest are donated back into the community through various Fox Valley nonprofit organizations.

On Saturday there will be a Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show and a Paperfest Balloon Glow.

On Sunday in addition to the Vic Ferrari Symphony on the Rocks concert there will be dollar priced carnival rides, a parade, touch a truck event, trolley tours, time capsule viewing, and drink specials to help celebrate 100 years of Combined Locks.
