BEMIDJI -- Wednesday night tunes will soon return to the shores of Lake Bemidji.

The third season of Mississippi Music at the Bemidji Waterfront will kick off on Wednesday, June 13, at Paul Bunyan Park.

The Lost Walleye Orchestra will perform from 6 to 8 p.m. with their combination of Americana, folk, country-blues and classic rock, a release said. Although the musicians hail from Mankato and Minneapolis and feature members of the legendary bands City Mouse and The Castaways, they have strong ties to the Bemidji area.

Food trucks will be on site as well as a beer garden for those 21 and older. Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs or a blanket. In case of rainy weather, signs will be posted near the venue directing concertgoers to Brigid’s Pub, located at 317 Beltrami Ave. NW, in downtown Bemidji.

  • June 20: The Fattenin’ Frogs
