‘Lake Wobegon Day’ announced

Bemidiji Mayor Rita Albrecht is joined by tourists at the Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox statues on Wednesday as she read a proclamation stating Sunday in Bemidji will be “Lake Wobegon Day.” This holiday weekend, Bemidji and other communities are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Garrison Keillor radio program, “A Prairie Home Companion,” which brought Lake Wobegon to life. Monte Draper | Bemidji Pioneer
