The 14th annual Lester River Rendezvous starts on Sunday, September 29th at 10AM.  The Rendezvous moved to Sunday from Saturday due to rainy conditions.

This event features re-enactors for the "Voyageur Village". Many people volunteer to be re-enactors for the Rendezvous. They make the village feel much more real, and provide insight into how life was lived during the 18th century in Northern Minnesota.

At the Rendezvous, there will also be crafts and arts, along with 50 food and craft vendors. Live music and lots of fun are promised, and there will be engaging activities for kids and adults all day long!

The North Shore Scenic Railroad are sponsoring a free train shuttle from 26th Avenue East, with a stop at 46th Avenue East. There is free parking at 26th Avenue East, and at 46th Avenue East at the clinic parking lot. Everyone is welcome. Admission into the park is free also.

So don't miss your chance to check it out, on Sunday, September 29th, from 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. All events will run on Sunday just as they were planned to on Saturday.
