WAUSAU Wis. (WAOW) — It’s that time of year again where the umbrellas line part of the 400 block in Wausau.
The 3rd street umbrellas are a major tourist attraction right in downtown Wausau. This is the first year Compass Properties is partnering up with the River District and the City of Wausau with each of their logos on the umbrellas.
“It started as a 20th anniversary of renovating downtown Wausau and to try to get my daughter to come home from Europe and it just was a great colorful way to show our love for the downtown,” said Mark Craig the General Manager for Compass Properties – Northeast Region.
The umbrellas are usually up August through October but this year they will be up all summer long.
