Bob and Bonnie Spielman were crowned the "Winter Festival King and Queen" on Saturday evening, in a surprise ceremony at the Festival's 30th annual celebration. Owners of Hat Head and the "driving force" behind the Festival, the duo's dedication to the event has transformed it into the iconic Wisconsin-winter celebration it is today.

"They looked confused and surprised when Cy called them to the stage. You could tell they were both so tickled! It was such a sweet moment," said Jackie Campbell, Winter Festival event coordinator.
The "King and Queen" have an interesting history with Winter Festival. Having actually met at the event in 1994, one could say it has become a very special part of the couple's story.
"We really do love this festival...and Bob works so, so hard for it...he deserves every bit of recognition," said Queen Bonnie. "He voluntarily does this festival year after year because of how happy it makes everyone else. It was so nice to see him get such a big 'pat on the back' from his community."
The Winter Festival Committee is comprised of Fish Creek business owners; happy to publicly thank Bob and Bonnie for their years of dedication to the event and for making 2017 one of its BEST years yet.
