A new year is upon us, full of potential for greatness and new opportunities! Here are just a few things we have to look forward to coming up in 2019.

Hockey Day Minnesota: January 17th and 19th in Bemidji. St. Cloud got to host last year! It was a lot of fun and worth the 2 1/2 hour drive up.

Twins Home Opener: March 28th against the Cleveland Indians. This year they are giving away Twins Puffer Vests! Get your tickets here!


Lemonade Concert and Art Fair - Thursday, June 27th at St. Cloud State University. This year will be the 46th year of the event! Get all the information on it here.

Minnesota State Fair: Aug. 22th – Sept. 2nd. An earlier fair this year, which I'm ok with. less time to wait for the new foods!

The Little Falls Arts and Crafts Fair - Sept. 7th and 8th. Always held the weekend after Labor Day, this craft fair brings over 100,000 people to historic Downtown Little Falls. Get all the info on it here. 

Vikings First Game of the Season - TBD. Schedules for the NFL are usually released in April. After the last game they played against the Bears, I'm hoping for a season of redemption.

Happy New Year! What are you looking forward to?
