The festivals of Minnesota

One of these days on NewsCut we’re going to have to have an NCAA-Tournament-style competition of summertime festivals.

When we do, remind me to include Pequot Lakes’ Bean Hole Days, which wrapped up yesterday, according to the Brainerd Dispatch.

There’s something oddly comforting about a town that will turn out in the middle of the week for the chance to eat a cup of beans that couldn’t possibly be properly cooked and delivered without the aid of a backhoe.
