Jeannine Windels, Lions Club: "We're serving brats, hotdog's, corn on the cob, fresh from the Farmer's Market."

  All kinds of food has already been served up, by all kinds of food vendors around the town square. Plus, it's the ribfest tonight at the American Legion.

Music: "Here's a quarter, call someone who cares…."

  And there are all kinds of entertainment acts for the entire family on the main stage all weekend long or if you're a bit adventurous, you can get an airboat ride or even take your own 1-hour long canoe trip down the Red Lake River into Crookston.

Dale Stainbrook, Ox Cart Days: "Just go down to Central Park by the boat landing and there's someone down there that will help get you out here and on the river."

  After a full schedule events tonight and tomorrow, things will wrap up with the torch light parade Saturday evening, followed by a fireworks display.
