Okay so maybe this is a bit goofy for a title but it’s true!

In about a 5 week span Detroit Lakes will have played host to thousands of country music fans who come to WE Fest, watch beginning and advanced triathletes compete in the Young Life Triathlon, host USA and international drivers participating in the Ojibwe Forests Rally, celebrate the end of summer at the cabins on 412 lakes in the area then host more athletes coming to town to run in the Dick Beardsley Run!

But it’s not just the weekends that provide options for everyone… it’s the week days too! During that same time frame there is an art camp, theater camp, BMX nights, Boys and Girls Club, Latch Key, Summer Day Camp, the Rec, the beach, paddle boarding, the Becker County Museum, Sucker Creek, Tamarac, the skateboard park, Lakes Area Farmers Market, City parks, tennis courts, tubing down the Otter Tail River and more! Wow…so happy to be living in a place with so many options! Now….what to do the last week of summer!
