Saturday the 3rd of May is a huge deal in Kanabec County. There's lots to do, so get out there and have some fun!
City wide garage sale day is the 3rd. The Advertiser has run a long spread of all the sales going on this weekend and a map to guide you to them. There are some awesome looking sales out there, and some great stuff! Baby items, pontoon boats, and the Potato Wagon is making an appearance, too! There's also a large auction being performed by Les Stromberg of Stromberg Auctioneering at the Kanabec County Fairgrounds. It will definitely be a great day to find some deals! Most sales start at 7 AM, so make sure you're up plenty early!
May 3rd is also the annual Canoe Race down Snake River. The race starts at the public access on County Road 3 (300th Avenue), and will end at the canoe park in Mora. While at the canoe park, take a look at some of the native vegetation work that is going on, and enjoy the grass becoming green. Hopefully it will be a beautiful weekend for it!
There is also car seat checks being performed at Ogilvie School on Saturday. What a great opportunity to make sure that your child's car seat is installed safely and securely! It's completely free, so stop while you're garage sale-ing and make sure you have everything right.
Also, the Kanabec County Soil and Water District will be having their tree sale and pickup at the Kanabec County Fairgrounds on Saturday as well. If you have ordered bundles you will be able to pick them up. If you haven't but are interested in purchasing some trees or shrubs, extras will be sold. There is always an extensive variety, and the bundles are 25 in most cases for $25. Watch for the signs in town!
Get out this weekend and partake in some of the great activities! There's lots of fun for everyone!
