Canton was right on with Day Off


Mon, Aug 25th, 2014
Posted in Canton Features

The city of Canton, Minn. celebrated its 135th Day Off celebration with hundreds of residents and visitors enjoying three days of summertime fun August 15 - 17, 2014.

A softball tournament got the weekend started Friday and continued through Sunday at the newly dedicated Ralph Leistikow Field. The beer tent opened at the Fest Grounds just in time for the All School Gathering at the Fest Tent. It was a time for people to see and talk with those they may not have seen for many years.

Contestants took the Bloody Mary contest seriously in the Fest Tent Friday evening while younger folks were not so serious while dancing to DJ Dewy during the Teen Dance at the Town Hall.

While the teenagers had their fun adults gathered at the Fest Tent for the Raiders Rendezvous Prom where participants dressed in their favorite prom dress, suit, or other attire. The prom included a Grand March with some vintage suits and dresses with music provided by DJ Stateline Entertainment.

Two couples attending the prom were Charles and Ruby Oian and Arnie and Karen Arneson who have a long and special history together. The two couples double-dated many times in high school including prom and have stayed close throughout the years. The dresses Ruby and Karen wore to the Raiders Rendezvous Prom were the same prom dresses they wore in 1963. Ruby states that both couples married in 1964 and celebrated their 50th anniversaries together during the prom. The Arneson’s live in rural Canton and the Oian’s live in Winona, Minn.

Activities began early on Saturday with the Raiders Dash 5K Run/Walk Race with participants gathering at the school and getting their exercise while enjoying the morning and the company of friends and family while looking forward to the events which were planned for the rest of the day.

Homemade breads and pies of all types were brought in to the town hall by proud bakers to be sampled by some very lucky judges. Farmers and tractor enthusiasts also came together for a Tractor Ride downtown Saturday morning.

An Antique and Working Truck Show was held all day Saturday at TJ’s Cafe bringing many people to walk around and take a look at the impressive trucks of all kinds. The Truck Show was sponsored by Severson Oil Company, Mileage Gas & Diesel Fuel Islands, Preston Dairy & Farm, Nuss Truck & Equipment, Bruening Rock Products, Inc., and Davis Construction.
