Labor Day Weekend "Kicks Off" on Friday for a weekend of great shopping deals!
Pick up a map at Anderson Canoe Outfitters and complete the Trading Post Run enjoying end-of-season discounts and sidewalk sales at area businesses. In the evening, dine at Voyagaire Lodge enjoying an all-you-can eat Fish Fry from 5-9 pm.
Saturday events include a Pancake breakfast at the Chapel (8-11 am), a very popular afternoon guided hike (1 pm - 4 pm) beginning at Handbergs Marina, Mystery Voyageur Arrowheads in the sand (4 pm - 6 pm) at Pine Point Lodge, and an evening dance with the Circuit Breakers Band at Voyagaire Lodge, 9 pm-midnight.
Also in 2017, Crane Lake is working together to raise money for our Fire Dept/EMS crew. We are purchasing a new rescue boat and motor. On Friday, stop at Nelson's Resort to see donated items on display as part of the Silent Auction. Then again on Saturday these items will be available at Voyagaire Lodge from noon- 8 pm. On Saturday night at 8 pm, silent auction winners will be announced and so will the grand prize winners from the raffle! Raffle tickets are still available at most area businesses.
Sunday morning is a weekend highlight - the 4th annual Crane Lake 5K Walk/Run. Be at Nelson's Resort to register between 8-8:30 am and the Race starts promptly at 9. Preregister by August 20th please for the guarantee of a t-shirt. (Registration forms are available at area businesses, cost is $25/adults and $20/kids 12 and under) In 2016, approximately 90 people participated in this Fun Run! And many of them enjoyed the popular Bloody Mary Bar available afterwards. Please call Brenda at 993-2295 if you have questions.
Sunday morning you are also welcome to attend the Crane Lake Chapel (service at 11:30). Our advertised Basket Weaving Class with Connie has been cancelled. (Sorry!)
Sunday afternoon the Trading Post Run wraps up with another Ice Cream Social from 1 pm - 3 pm at Handbergs Marina where prizes will be awarded at 2. Bring your completed Trading Post Run map to win cash prizes.
Monday (Labor Day) stop over at Voyagaire Lodge to enjoy a car show! The Dream Machines from the Iron Range will be arriving around 1 pm for lunch. It is always exciting to see their great cars roll into town!
