Second annual event brings a nice crowd to Ash Street.

The 2nd Annual Water Wars were held Thursday evening on Ash Street downtown.  KROX Radio was the winner in the amateur division and the Red Lake Falls Fire Department won the professional division.

    A nice crowd came out to watch eight teams compete in the amateur division and four in the professional division.  Defending champs RiverView Health fell to the KROX team.  In the professional division, Crookston Fire Department #1, the defending champs, were defeated by the RLFFD in a best of three in the finals.

    Rosters included: KROX – Jacob Oien, Jesse Bosquez and Zack Lutz.  RLFFD – Jeremy Breiland, Darcy Cardinal and Wade Cardinal.

    The Crookston Chamber and Visitors Bureau thanks the CFD, Otter Tail Power and Crookston Parks and Recreation for making the event possible.  

    The Chamber Block Party series continues Aug. 1 with the “Mid-Town Mixer” at participating businesses along University Avenue.
