This Saturday (January 20th) would be a great time to head to the North West Company Fur Post, located near Pine City. The Fur Post is part of the Minnesota Historical Society. The Winter Frolic event takes place from 12-4. It’s supposed to be a bit warmer, so only minimal layers will be needed. If you have a Historical Society membership, you can save 20% on admission to the event.
North West Company Fur Post Winter Frolic
Shake off the winter blues by heading outdoors at the fur post. Learn about winter travel during the fur trade and join in activities like throwing a curling stone, playing a round of Ojibwe snow snake, or snowshoeing along two miles of trails.
Guests can also relax indoors, enjoy a cup of cocoa before a blazing fire; watch the outdoors festivities from the visitor center and play period parlor games.
