Taste of the Trail had much to offer


Mon, Sep 15th, 2014

A cool morning on September 6, 2014 gave way to a beautiful sunny day for Taste of theTrail with Fountain, Minn., Preston, Minn. and Harmony, Minn. being the featured towns of the day with activities and samples offered from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Taste of the Trail gives residents and visitors using the Root River Trail System the opportunity to stop and see what each town on the trail has to offer while sampling tasty treats and perusing other items. Taste of the Trail occurs on three Saturdays in September with three towns featured each Saturday. Taste of the Trail is sponsored by Root River Trail Towns.

Fountain had some businesses set up in the city park and others offered goodies inside their stores. Julie Gade with the First State Bank of Fountain had bicyclists smelling popcorn before they got to the park as the breeze sent the aroma their way.

Rose Voight with Amish Tours by Rose was handing out ice cold bottles of water and Barb’s Carpet Care offered carrots and celery sticks in to-go bags. Suite B Photography had Mardi Gras beads and snack size chocolate bars for the attendees.

A Little Decadence served Scandinavian pastry samples which were very popular with visitors including Carl Obert and his wife Elizabeth Nida Obert of Rochester, Minn. who enjoyed tasting the pastries. Another favorite stop was the booth presented by Nightmare on First Street with ghoulish props and treats reminding everyone that the spooky Halloween season is not far away.

Drury’s Furniture handed out bottled water, the Bent Wrench gave out samples of their delicious homemade French fries, and the Village Square of Fountain gave happy visitors free mini cones. Fillmore Fitness whipped up fruit smoothies and the Fillmore County History Center & Museum treated guests to donuts and juice.

The First State Bank of Fountain gave away a $25 gift certificate for the Village Square and another $25 gift certificate for the Bent Wrench. Oak Spring Herb Farm offered a Culinary Herb Pot as a prize and Simple Sewing Creations gave away a mini quilted wall hanging to a lucky participant.

Fountain Building Center and Drury’s Furniture provided financial support to bring Taste of the Trail to Fountain on a gorgeous day.

The Trail Head Park in Preston was full of activities, music, and people welcoming guests to sample many unique items. The Rutabaga Brothers entertained the .....
