From Cascade Falls and the St. Croix River to Trollhaugen’s aerial courses, the Osceola area stars an upcoming episode of the weekly television program Discover Wisconsin.
Titled “Just Off Main Street,” the episode features the Wisconsin communities of Osceola, Florence, Whitewater and Omro. Reaching an audience of some 600,000 viewers in the Upper Midwest, Osceola’s inclusion on the list is expected to draw visitors to the area.
As the episode opens, show host Mariah Haberman walks Cascade Street.
“A community’s main street is the beating heart of its town,” she says. “It’s the city center, it’s full of history and it’s a gathering spot for residents and visitors alike.”
The crew visits Cascade Falls, explores the river by kayak, tries Trollhaugen’s ropes course and talks to locals and visitors about the village’s most unique features. With additional shots of the farmers market, trails, the railway and monarchs on blazing star flowers, the episode paints a charming picture of the “cool little river town.”
Filmed last August, the footage is now edited and ready to air. The Osceola Area Chamber and Main Street Program will host a party March 7 to celebrate the episode’s premiere (see sidebar for details).
