The 12th annual Ellsworth Cheese Curd Festival was a smashing success over the weekend as attractions included music, pedal pull, parade and cheese curds. 

Sunday was headlined by the curd as the annual fresh-curd eating contest was held along with the added new event of the hot-dipped curd-eating contest. Other events included the parade, bean bag tournament and festival auction. 

Saturday was marked by musical performances such as the Back Channel Blues Band, D Boys and Brad Marx. There was also a kiddie parade, kids pedal pull, the fun run, and train rides from Happ-E-Hill Express. 

Friday's night activities were led by a performance from Midnight Special.

Food and beer tents were available all three days, along with vendors and local businesses exhibitors.
