Audubon Days is one big event
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

On June 13, Audubon will be buzzing.

"We combined (events) together this year, hopefully to keep the confusion down," said organizer Gerard Faith.

Between food, games, a Harley Davidson raffle and a street dance, there's plenty for anyone at this year's Audubon Days.

Audubon Meats will provide $1.25 brats and beverage, and free samples of ribs.

There will be horse-drawn rides through the streets, and the First Lutheran Church will have baked goods galore for sale, including pies and ice cream and even penny candy.

The Sweet Shoppe will be located in the Audubon Community Center from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes breads, muffins, donuts, cookies, cakes, bars and more.

The fire department is hosting an open house all day, and that evening will also host a street dance from 9 to midnight, with music by Rhyme or Reason. Gates open at 8 p.m.

A bike run begins at 10:30 a.m., and a raffle will be held at 10 p.m. for a Harley Davison bike. Tickets are available through any Audubon fireman.

The Audubon Liquor Store is hosting karaoke from 8 p.m. to midnight, and the Zephyr is hosting a car show from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

There will be free inflatable playground equipment set up for kids all day, and there will be a pet parade at noon. Anyone can participate.

Faith said Crazy Days has been going on in Audubon for 25 years and the firemen's dance has been happening for over 30 years. The June 13 event is a day for families, and everyone is welcome to come partake in the festivities.
