After a lousy summer of cancellations and COVID restrictions, followed by a hot, drought-filled summer of wildfires and smoke, Bemidjians have finally been able to enjoy a return to normalcy with mild temperatures and perfect weather.

With the added return of Sanford's annual powwow, a full-blown water carnival, art festivals and a whole lot more, it was a packed month of events and activities. Pioneer photographers Annalise Braught, Madelyn Haasken and Maggi Fellerman captured these fun moments along the way.
