Businesses on University Avenue south of Fisher Avenue spotlighted.

    On Thursday, Aug. 1 from 5 to 7 p.m., the Crookston Chamber of Commerce will continue its Block Party series with the "Mid-Town Mixer." Stop by and take in the great food, music, and deals from surrounding local Crookston businesses participating in the event.

    The Mid-Town Mixer will highlight businesses along University Ave., south of Fisher Ave. Most businesses in this section of town will be open during the block party offering great discounts, promotions, and related advertising to their customers.

    Looking for food? The staff at RBJ’S Restaurant will be providing broasted chicken with potato salad and lemonade for $5. After eating, take a stroll along the block and visit other Crookston businesses taking part in the Mid-Town Mixer such as: Hugo’s, D&B/ Doda’s Hardware Hank, Biermaier Chiropractic Clinic, Minakwa Golf Club, Wish Upon a Star, Bridge Street Candle, and Farm Bureau Financial Services.

    Also, don’t forget each week the "Minute to Win It" game is always happening for the entire family to try. This week is a bit challenging with a new game entitled "Flip the Lid." The first ten winners of this week’s challenge will win a free red Ox Cart Days bottle.
