The weather for this year’s Buffalo Bill Days in Lanesboro, Minn. was perfect for a weekend spent with family and friends. Everyone attending the event was blessed with sunshine and smiles from friendly faces.

Friday, August 2, 2013 began the three day celebration with the Beer and Brat tent opening next to the Community Center. The softball tournament started Friday evening with many teams competing. Brent Olson, of Lanesboro, was playing softball with the team from the Root River Saloon and stopped by the concession stand at the softball field on Saturday where Kendall Stettler, 10, and Jared Peterson, 10, served him a bite to eat in between games. Also beginning on Friday was a Golf Tournament where players could play 18 holes of golf anytime from Friday at 5 p.m. until Sunday at noon.

Commonweal Theatre of Lanesboro held a production of “Blithe Spirit” on Friday evening, which is a must-see for fans of the Commonweal or first time patrons. “Blithe Spirit” is a “ghostly tale” that runs through September 7, 2013 at the Commonweal Theatre. For more information go to the website for the Commonweal Theatre at www.commonwealtheatre.org.

A street dance was held in front of the Fire Hall on Friday evening with music by “Trouble Shooter” that had the crowd shaking and grooving. Sober Shuttle Rides were offered by R&M Amish Tours of Lanesboro both Friday and Saturday nights. Owners Jamie and Holly Knutson stated that quite a few people took advantage of the sober rides.

The volleyball tournament started on Saturday morning with the softball tournament continuing throughout the day as well. The teams and individual players had a lot of fans watching and supporting them as the tournaments advanced. The Brat and Beer tent, which was located next to the volleyball courts opened at 10 a.m., which was convenient for the audience and the players.

The Market Place and Farmer’s Market opened on Saturday to the delight of many. There was a wide array of interesting items available to purchase at the many different booths that encircled Sylvan Park. Some of the booths were traditional favorites and a few were brand new to Buffalo Bill Days. Lincoln Theis, of Winona, Minn., with FATCAPS clothing was a first-time vendor at this year’s Buffalo Bill Days Market Place. FATCAPS sells custom .....
