  • The Door County Sled Dogs are coming to snow-covered Whitnall Park the weekend of March 2 and 3, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. The recreational team of all rescued dogs, under the direction of their mushers, will give dog-sled rides with the mission of education and fun for all ages. Rides depart from 5879 S. 92 St., on a first-come, first-served basis, at $15 per rider. The dog-sled ride experience includes visiting with the dogs, question-and-answer time with the mushers, picture-taking time, and a dog-sled ride around the trail. The trail loop is about the size of a football field. Click here for more information Photo courtesy Milwaukee County
