Sister Bay's three year Department of Transportation road project will wrap up next spring, but the road construction certainly won't stop the "Granddaddy" of all festival's this weekend, Sister Bay's Fall Festival.  Originally envisioned as a party for the locals that were wrapping up the tourism season, this three day festival has turned into one of the biggest and best-known Fall Festivals in the State of Wisconsin, with it's one-of-a-kind Ping Pong Ball Drop, where ping pong balls are dropped OUT of a helicopter (weather permitting) with thousands of spectators below, hoping for a prize.  This is a "walk to downtown Sister Bay" festival--most of the roads will be closed for festival activities. This festival features food, fun, entertainment, arts & crafts, activities, childrens' ac...

Drive just four miles east of the downtown Village of Sister Bay, and it's like entering another world.  Welcome to Marshall's Point in the Town of Liberty Grove, a private, gated community and a "peninsula on the Door Peninsula"cross this unique area and provide for some of the most serene communes with nature possible.  A trip to Marshall's Point at any time of day or year is an adventure.  One may see any type of wildlife imaginable, as no hunting is allowed--it's a naturalist paradise.  Early morning daybreak brings scores of birds that burst into song at the slightest provocation. This area is a mix of seasonal and year-round homes (only 31 home sites on the entire Point).  The western half of the Point faces west--meaning sunsets over Lake Michigan (truly astounding).  From some a...
