Head to Wabasha in February for the 30th Annual Grumpy Old Men Festival!
You just have to love a movie that is set in Minnesota AND was filmed here! It’s hard to imagine it really has been 30 years though!
If you haven’t seen it, now is the time. I’ve seen it so many times and still laugh each time, it really is a movie you can watch over and over.
The festivities are always interesting with some new activities, but they always have old favorites including the ice fishing contest, library story hour, a s’more station and kid-friendly games, and more.
Have you ever been to this festival? We love to go to small-town events, even if we aren’t from there or know anyone. We usually end up striking up conversations with someone and learning something new about the area. One of favorite things is the food, finding a new place to try.
