Hot August nights

And days.  More so days, actually.  But we love it!  It's the pinnacle of summer and we want to make it last. 
Northfield and it's surrounding communities offer some of the best in summer entertainment and activities from our weekly Riverwalk Market, to great outdoor concerts and county fairs.  This month features both the Rice County Fair up in neighboring Farmington, and the Steele County Free Fair just south of us in Owatonna. 
Here in town we have some great music as usual... outdoors on the deck at the Contented Cow, or in the quaint Tavern Lounge on the street level of the Archer House. 
This month, on August 27th, saddle up your motorcycle and join in the Outlaw Run through southern Minnesota.  The route traces the trail followed by the James gang before their attempted raid on the town's bank in 1876.
Cannon Valley Winery is also featuring musicians during weekend afternoons.  Sip some local wine and enjoy a live performance.
So many possibilities for getting the most out of this final month of summer!  Plan a visit soon and include a stay at the Magic Door.  I hope to see you soon!
