Thanks for the Trout Festival. First "normal" weekend in a long time.

Have a happy Labor Day. The town up here, Exeland, had their community Trout Festival this weekend

Anyway, I got to live a life like we had before COVID-19. Friday I watched a softball game (tournament all weekend). Chris Kroeze played a four hour concert Friday night. He said it was his first festival this year due to C-19. Local guy from Barron, was second place on The Voice a couple years back. I took a lot of video. Ate fair food, a brat, and the Special Trout Sandwich, drank some beer. Bought some raffle tickets. Saturday I went to the street fair and watched some more softball. Sunday was the parade at noon. The raffle drawing was Sunday at 5:30. I didn’t win the big ATV prize, but my neighbors up here won $200. Live music the whole weekend, softball tourney. Nobody was wearing a mask, so we’ll see how that all comes out, but I don’t care either way. I had more fun than I’ve had in too long. God bless small towns in America.
