Lots of changes are in store for this year’s Walleye Madness at Midnight event in downtown Port Clinton. More entertainment has been added to the lineup and a second stage will be erected just for music. Kids events are expanding
and as usual, Wylie the Walleye will drop to Madison Street to ring in the new year, but even he doesn’t look the same.
A few months back, the 15-year-old fiberglass fish got more than $3,000 in upgrades including fresh paint, a new cradle and updated signage. Wylie’s fuzzy counterpart, who can be found walking around the event waving at revelers and posing for photos, is also getting a new look, to be unveiled that night.
