I would like to give my gratitude to Nell DeBoer, the Ox Cart Festival Committee, and all of the sponsoring businesses that had a hand in putting together this year’s Ox Cart Days Festival.

    I would like to give my gratitude to Nell DeBoer, the Ox Cart Festival Committee, and all of the sponsoring businesses that had a hand in putting together this year’s Ox Cart Days Festival.

    This Ox Cart Days brought back so many memories of the ones that I eagerly awaited every summer growing up. I was able to share those fond memories with my children and family this Ox Cart Days.

    The turnout was great. There were events for everyone. I couldn’t walk three steps downtown without overhearing someone, kids and adults, talking about how much fun this year’s Ox Cart Days has been and what events and competitions they are going to enter next year.

    In Crookston, as in many small towns, these things are tough to do well. It takes many people putting in even more hours and working together effectively to put together events for everyone, and making them run smoothly.

    This year’s Ox Cart Days committee pulled it off, and I want to show my appreciation. Thank you for everything that you did to help make this little town festival one to be proud of again!
