Bite of Park Rapids is a palate pleaser

The brain freeze contest required participants to drink a slushy as fast as possible. The winner got a prize and two Excedrin for the headache. In the background, the band “Dead Horses’” was setting up to play. Caricatures and contests kept the action moving along. A large crowd headed downtown to check out the 4th annual Bite of Park Rapids. Inflatable toys kept kids entertained most of the afternoon. Food from numerous vendors kept tummies full. Brothers Nash and Mace Marier stuffed their little faces with corn dogs.

  Aksel Knapp lathered up his sunflower seed a little too well and ended up spitting it out near his feet.
