Sawtooth Brothers this Friday @ 7pm!

Sawtooth Brothers this Friday under the bridge at 7pm!

Dazzling audiences with precision picking and sharp harmonies developed over 8 years of playing, performing, and growing up together, the Sawtooth Brothers have created a strong musical rapport with one another, which is channeled through their infectious original material.

The sound of the Sawtooth Brothers is rooted in traditional bluegrass instrumental and harmony work and is influenced by modern acoustic sounds, blending pop and indie rock sensibilities with heartfelt americana.

During a live performance by the Sawtooth Brothers, audiences can expect creative original songs, hard driving bluegrass, classic country, gospel, and classic rock. Tying it all together is the band’s ability to put on a good show. Each band member’s strong passion for performing music is communicated through their entertaining and endearing stage show.

Bald Eagle Days: June 24th-27th in Wabasha!

In 2007 the bald eagle was finally removed from the Endangered Species list after more than 30 years. Not all species are so fortunate. There are hundreds of species that are still threatened or endangered. Each of them has an important role to play in a healthy environment. Join the National Eagle Center during Bald Eagle Days to learn more about some of these amazing creatures and celebrate their road to recovery! On June 24th the NEC will kick off their summer kids program, Fishing for Eagles, come celebrate the recovery of the bald eagle and learn more about the many different species that still need our help!

100 Mile Garage Sale

Fifteen historic river towns and two states clean out their attics, garages and basements to create the most spectacular garage sale around! Bargain hunters can start anywhere along the river road- Minnesota or Wisconsin- rain or sine. The 100 Mile Garage Sale extends from Winona north to Hastings on the Minnesota side of the River and Fountain City north to Prescott on the Wisconsin side of the River. Thousands of individuals and businesses participate with their own garage sales, often whole neighborhoods. While there are no maps indicating the exact location of the individual sales they are very easy to find and are identified by signage, balloons and ribbons. Garage Sales start on Thursday morning and end Sunday morning.
