Mid-summer by the River

July... fireworks... barbecues...heat and humidity.
Time to head down to Northfield and hang out by the Cannon.  A stroll by the river on a warm summer night is great way to celebrate summertime in Minnesota.  Stop in at the Contented Cow for a cold drink on the deck.  Check out some music at one of our downtown venues.
For bargain hunters we have our annual Crazy Daze sidewalk sale on July 28th.  Get an early start and enjoy the savings along with tasty food specials and other festive activities.  Stores open at 7am.
For Theater this month, the Northfield Arts Guild is presenting their rendition of "13, The Musical", the only all -teenage show ever to hit Broadway.  In Fairbault, at the Paradise Center For the Arts, you can revel in some nostalgia with a revival of "Godspell" the smash 1970 hit musical by Stephen Schwartz and John-Micheal Tebelak. 
Also in Faribault, the Rice County Fair is running from July 19th through the 24th.  Plenty of live music, rides, entertainment and, best of all, fair food!
The Magic Door is the perfect respite to escape the heat for awhile and simply relax.  Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfasts, and just blocks away from downtown shops and activities.  Hope to see you soon!!
