Large crowds enjoy Trout Days

Posted in Preston Features

People came from near and far to take in all of the action and activities that the 2015 Trout Days celebration in Preston, Minn. had to offer on May 15, 16, & 17.

The festivities began early on Friday morning as city wide garage sales took place with many people finding great deals on items. There were many garage sales in and around Preston and vehicles could be seen pulling in to one sale after another. The garage sales continued on Saturday, as well.

At noon the Trout Days Golf Kickoff began at the Preston Golf & Country Club. As golfers spent time with family and friends they also took advantage of the food and drink specials that were offered.

A delicious steak dinner with all the fixin’s was a big hit at the Preston EMS Building. The dinner, which was a fundraiser for the Preston Ambulance Service, served many hungry people who left with a full belly and a smile on their face.

Musical entertainment for the weekend was kicked off by “Luke & Bob Texas” at the Preston Servicemen’s Club. The great music had people dancing not only in the club, but also dancing outside on the deck, on the sidewalk, and in the street.

Saturday began with the Preston Lion’s Club Pancake Breakfast at the Preston United Methodist Church. Volunteers flipped hundreds of pancakes and served them up hot for those looking for a tasty start to their day.

The Kids’ Fishing Event began at 9 a.m. in Maust pasture. Kids arrived with parents, grandparents, and other family members to try to pull in the “catch of the day” and unknowingly created memories and possibly sparked a new hobby for many of the children.

Sports was the theme of Saturday morning with the Co-Ed Volleyball Tournament in the city park near the swimming pool and the Falcon 5K Run/Walk sponsored by the Fillmore Central Booster Club taking place, as well as the start of the weekend long Adult Fishing Contest.

There was something to do or see in every direction of the town square around the Fillmore County Courthouse on Saturday with a Just For Kix performance, the annual Car/Street Rod Show, which has taken place for 25 years, many different kinds of vendor booths, and the Relay for Life Booth in front of JuliaClaire Repeat Boutique.

Some of the many activities included a bouncy house, balloon animals, photo booth, caricature drawings, sumo wrestling, and a Fly Trap Velcro Wal .....
