What REALLY happened on September 6, 1962;
and why the United States won the space race.
This re-enactment put on by our local theater
group has become a festival favorite. Something
we're sure you will find fun and entertaining.

5:30 pm
The Manitowoc Fire Dept. will assist us in dropping hundreds of alien erasers from their ladder truck directly over the brass ring that marks the spot where the piece of Russian Sputnik IV landed in the middle of N. 8th Street. Individuals purchased raffle tickets which corresponded with the aliens. The ticket holder whose ticket matching the alien that lands closest to the center of the brass ring will win $1000. Tickets can be purchased, beginning in July, at the Rahr prior to Sputnikfest or the day of Sputnikfest. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE PRESENT TO WIN!

And of course the 501st Legion will be roaming the grounds once again.
