Lake Tomahawk was always known as a tourist attraction because of its lakes and gorgeous scenery. In 1961 Town Chairman, Ray Sloan, wanted to give summer tourists and residents another source of entertainment so he invited other area teams to challenge the hometown squad to games in the summer months, replacing the usual snow-covered field with saw chips.
The Snowhawk games are played each Monday evening beginning at 7:30 with the starting contest set for June 28th and concluding August 30th with the annual benefit game for Lakeland Food Pantry. The July 4th game will again feature the Chicago All-Star team. The stands at Snowshoe Park provide one of the finest viewing sites for the town‘s fireworks which follow the holiday contest. Spectators constantly can be heard saying this is one of the best displays they have witnessed. One of the most entertaining evenings is the Newswatch 12 Night on August 30th, a time for fans to enjoy the antics of the TV personalities.
We do not charge admission, but a butterfly net is passed through the stands during the middle of the game. The net proceeds provide Snowshoe with revenue used for expenses as well as donations to various charitable projects which help out community needs.
A concession stand is available on the grounds and is sponsored by the following area service clubs: Lions, Lioness, Legion and Legion Auxiliary, Circle of Women, Sno-fleas snowmobile club, Lake Tomahawk Bible Church and the Lake Tomahawk Volunteer Firemen. Food is available beginning at 5:30 p.m. for the convenience of residents and visitors to the area. The menu includes brats, hamburgers, cheesburgers, hot dogs, soft drinks and coffee. You won’t be able to resist the vast array of homemade pies to top off your pre-game meal. Some nights there are 60 varieties to choose from. A popcorn stand is available each game.
