Wild Rice Festival Midway
The midway draw kids of all ages. There is usually a pre-sale special for rides that families can take advantage of. The midway has rides for children and adults as well as other games to play and, of course, BINGO is played in the old fire hall. BINGO is one of the Lions Club activities of the Wild Rice Festival. It is the returns from BINGO that help pay for the swimming and other programs the Lions Club provides for area youngsters.
The Saturday night Fire Works is prepared behind the High School and the Extravaganza begins at 10 PM! Everyone stops what they are doing to watch the fireworks. Strangers coming thru Deer River on either US Hwy 2 or Hwy 6 can see them for miles before they get to town.
