What’s it all about ? It’s about Delavan!
Delavan’s unique contribution to the rich history of Wisconsin.
This Event celebrates the colorful history of Delavan’s Founders, the people, events, industry, small businesses & every part of the puzzle that shaped the Delavan we see today. The Delavan Walldog committee will be digging through the past to find unique history that tells the great story of Delavan.
Starting June 24 – 28, 2015 the Walldogs will arrive to put that past into beautiful, colorful Murals on the walls of Delavan. These Murals will represent the newest piece of Delavan history and will be preserved for years, long after the Walldogs have finished.
Delavan’s Murals will help future generations appreciate the contribution that Delavan has made in Wisconsin and world history. If you love your town, these Murals will give you a further sense of “Hometown Pride”.
These colorful masterpieces will also welcome visitors and invite them to explore our great town.
Now that you know what it’s all about we invite you to be part of this historic phase of Delavan history.
Come along side us and volunteer, we would love to meet you.
