As I write this, I am overwhelmed at the variety of things to do this weekend in Lanesboro, Minnesota and the surrounding area.
The events featured below are in addition to attending the Farmer’s Market, riding the Root River trail, and taking in a play at the Commonweal Theatre.
The Bluff Country Gathering, a traditional American music festival, will be held in Lanesboro on May 15 – 18.
On Saturday, May 17, The Annual Stand Still Parade and much more will be in Whalan, a short five mile drive from Lanesboro. There will be live entertainment, food, antique cars, demonstrations and more. I have attended this event, and it is a fun event for the entire family.
Preston Trout Days will be on May 16 – 18. Preston is a short eight mile drive and the activities include a parade, music, volleyball tournament, street dance, and a car show.
It is so fun to take in all of the events and festivals that are being held in the area. We are ready for the season at Stone Mill. The bike rack is out, and the flowers are blooming.
Until next time . . . .
Taste of the Trail events will be held on the first three Saturdays in September. There will be activities and tastings along the Root River Trail in the designated towns.
The towns of Lanesboro, Whalan, and Peterson will be featured on Saturday, September 14 from 10 am – 3 pm. Stone Mill Hotel & Suites supports this event and encourages everyone to take part in the event.
Plan for a leisurely day to include food samples and entertainment. While in Lanesboro, be sure to check out the unique shops, Scenic Valley Winery, and the restaurants. The Commonweal Theater will have a preview of The Memory of Water on Saturday evening beginning at 7:30 pm.
Until next time . . . .
Did you ever wonder where bicycle enthusiasts get those really cool looking jerseys? And, did you ever wonder where you can get one of those really cool looking jerseys?
Now you also can have one of the coolest and hottest new bicycle jerseys on the state trail system this year! The jerseys are sold at some of the Lanesboro businesses that partnered in the design and creation of the (in my opinion) coolest looking jersey around. The jerseys can be purchased at Pedal Pushers Cafe, the Art & Craft Gallery at Stone Mill Hotel & Suites, and Lanesboro Local.
There are so many jerseys out there that speak to every taste and idea. Why not have a bicycle jersey that speaks to your taste and preference of the Root River Bicycle Trail?
Emily Spende, president of the Lanesboro Chamber of Commerce, is shown in the pictures sporting the new jersey. What a great way to tell to all your friends and bicycling buddies about the great Root River Bicycle Trail.
If you see Emily on the trail, say “hi” to her from her friends at Stone Mill.
Until next time. . . .
