Goin’ To The Lake: Amelia & Liz In Bemidji


ORDINANCE TO PRESENT TO THE COUNCIL FOR CONSIDERATION IN EARLY 2017. . WITH SUMMER WINDING DOWN. IT IS THE PERFECT TIME TO GET TOWN TO THE CITY AND THEY ARE IN BEMIDJI. IT IS A FOUR HOUR DRIVE NORTH OF THE TWIN CITIES. GREAT TO SEE YOU. IT LOOKS A LITTLE BREEZY THERE. IT IS A LOT BREEZY, FRANK. BUT, YOU KNOW. YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT A SCENIC RIDE. THE FIRST 45 MINUTES. NOT SO SCENIC BECAUSE OF THE THUNDERSTORM. THINGS GOT GOING. WE MADE IT HERE SAFE AND SOUND. WE WEREN’T HUNGRY BECAUSE LIZ PACKED EVERYTHING. KEPT MORE AND MORE OUT OF THE BAG AND NOW WE ARE HERE ON THE SHORES OF LAKE BEMIDJI AND YOU CAN SEE BEHIND US IN THE BOATS. THEY ARE GEARING UP FOR THIS WEEKEND’S DRAGON BOAT RACES. THEY ARE TAKING TO THE WATER HERE AND THESE BEAUTIFUL BOATS BEHIND US AND THERE IS A LOT THAT GOES INTO THE EVENT. IT TAKES PLACE HERE IN BEMIDJI AND IT IS NOT THE ONLY DRAW HERE IN TOWN. THERE ARE TWO LARGER THAN LIFE STATUES THAT GET AN AWFUL LOT OF ATTENTION HERE. TALKING ABOUT PRAWL BUNION AND BLUE OX BABE. BOTH WERE BUILT IN 1987. THAT WAS THE MAYOR AT THE TIME. EARL WAS MUCH SMALLER AND PAUL IS 18-FOOT TALL. WEIGHS TWO AND A HALF TONS. BABE WAS FIRST USED IN PARADE AND AFTER DAMAGE, FOUND A PERMANENT SPOT NEXT TO PAUL. THEY SPENDS MOST OF THE TIME POSING WITH PICTURES WITH TOURISTS. PAUL AND BABE MAY GET ALL THE PICTURES. THIS IS WHERE MOST OF THE SUMMER FUN HAPPENS ON LAKE BEMIDJI. IT TAKES UP 6400 ACRES AND CAN GET AS DEEP AS 70 FEET IN SOME PARTS. IT IS A GREAT FISHING LAKE AND ALL VARIETIES OF FISH. PAN FISH. MUSKIE AND WALL EYE AND CRUISING ON A PONTOON. HOPPING ON A JET OR JUST TIEW TUBING. I CAN TELL YOU THIS ABOUT LAKE BEMIDJI. IT NEEDS INTO THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AND IT IS THE FIRST CITY ON THE MISSISSIPPI. WE DISCOVERED O COOL BUSINESS IN TOWN WHILE WE ARE HERE. A COMPANY THAT TAKES WORLD WAR II FIGHTER JETS AND RESTORES THEM TO THE ORIGINAL CONDITION. WE WILL SHARE THE STORIES IN A COUPLE OF MINUTES. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL AND THEY ARE BIG. YES. ENING THEY ARE HUGE. DRAGON BOAT RAISING IS BIG IN CANADA AND CAME HERE TO BEMIDJI. THIS IS THE 11th YEAR OF THE DRAGON BOAT RACES.
