Congratulations to Park Rapids

Wow! Park Rapids, do you know how to PARTY! What an impressive showcase of events you pulled off for the Governor’s Fishing Opener. The media and sponsors were very complimentary regarding the tours to Itasca State Park, the Character Challenge, Black Swan Cooperage, the DNR Fish Hatchery, and the Taste of Park Rapids. Seeing the excitement in Friday’s downtown activities on the faces of the community from babies to teens to senior citizens reflects the pride everyone has in our extraordinary community.

The well-orchestrated details from welcoming the governor, the fast moving and delicious picnic, and the activities culminating in fireworks were incredible. The fishing hosts had a great time at the shore lunch, especially regaling each other with stories of the cold fishing conditions.

Park Rapids, you definitely presented yourself as a loving, fun-filled community in which to reside. Congrats on a job more than well done. You definitely created cherished memories that we all caught!
