Catching the end of summer

This summer has been an interesting one.

The weather was less than cooperative for the early summer events, and then it turned itself around and became stunning for the Northwest Water Carnival.

As the summer begins to slow, so do the events. But, August still plays host to town festivals, music and rallies. There should be something every weekend for one last month before school starts up again.

From Tuesdays in the Park to Pine to Palm, Crazy Daze to Boats & Bars, WE Fest to Young Life Triathlon, there will be plenty to see and do in August. Not to mention all the movies and nature presentations -- and the upcoming photo contest -- the Tamarac Wildlife Refuge has to offer, this month staff shares all there is to know about wild ricing on the refuge. It's a fascinating tradition that still lives on.

Whether you're looking for a day trip to Jasper's Theater in Park Rapids or a weekend of fun at Vergas Looney Daze, enjoy the last of this summer's activities.
