Some "Lost States" movements never die, especially if you can turn them into a tourist event. So it is with Sovereign State of Winneconne, which seceded in 1967 when the city was left of the Wisconsin state road map. Thanks to Steve Prestegard for reminding me that the 43rd Annual Winneconne Sovereign State Days begins this Friday. The events include a parade, lumberjack show, pancake breakfast, and concerts featuring Boogie & the Yoyoz’s, and Power Boys Polka Band. Proof that seceding is fun! (although the logo needs work). Details here.
