BOG & GROG -bigger and better than ever! A food building has been constructed in the north side of the bogs for better concessions and sale of the famous Bog Burger. Fencing has also received some needed repairs.
Thanks for your support and look forward to seeing you all there!
The Bog and Grog is held at the Wallington Fire Department’s field behind the fire hall. There is an area where trenches were dug out about 4 to 6 feet deep and filled about half with water. The participants attempt to drive their vehicles through the trenches without getting stuck. There are tow tractors to assist the ones that do get stuck. The fire department allows any vehicle, except ATVs. These vehicles can be custom made, older model, or newer model of vehicles, four wheel drive or not, to participate. There is a viewing area for those who wish to watch.
A nominal fee of $8.00 per person over 11 years old is charged to participants and/or spectators. Children under 12 years old are free. The Wallington Fire Department hosts two Bog and Grogs, one in the spring and fall. The time is from 12 noon to 5 PM for both.

- No ATV’s at anytime
