Local News

Hundreds of Jeeps lined up at the Wattsburg Fairgrounds, revved their engines, honked their horns, and drove around the area for a parade.

They ended up back at the fairgrounds for a weekend of fun including an obstacle course, mud pit, and even some competition.

Organizers of the first annual Great Lakes Jeep Jam said that it was a big success and will be back next year.

Preston Devenney said that based on all of the positive feedback, it is definitely going to be a yearly event.

Devenney added that the first year is always a challenge and this year was a big challenge because of the rain.

“But the people that were here had the times of their lives. I mean everybody as they were leaving I talked to them and there was not a negative comment whatsoever,” said Preston Devenney, Great Lakes Jeep Jam.

Devenney said that it is too early to see just how much money was raised from the vendors.
