The City of Rushford, Minn. was blessed with perfect weather for Rushford Days 2014 which was held July 14-20. The sunshine and warm temperatures brought a large crowd who did not let road construction in town stop them from enjoying the celebration.

The official celebrating began Monday evening with the Queen Pageant at the High School Gymnasium. Christina Strapp was crowned Queen with Courtney Gravos and Emily Rasmussen as attendants. Little Miss Rushford 2014 is Aubrey Ingvalson, according to the events Facebook page.

Tuesday evening brought many kids to the Rushford Aquatic Center for the Teen Swim Night which is a fun way for the teenagers to get together and cool off at the same time.

Ferndale Country Club held a Car Cruise Night on Wednesday night as attendees enjoyed music by Last Call Meldahl while also taking time to enjoy the beautiful scenery and spending time with friends.

Wine lovers poured into the American Legion Thursday evening for a Wine Tasting event where they could sample their favorite wines and also try some new blends. Younger kids had their own event on Thursday evening with the 6 - 12 Grade Teen Dance at the Fest Tent.

The annual event geared up on Friday with the food vendors serving at the Fest Grounds. The choice of food and drinks was so varied that it made the choice of what to eat a difficult one. Philly steak sandwiches, Mexican food, mini donuts, cheese curds, and pitas were only a few of the delectable’s available.

Stumpy’s of Rushford had their concession wagon filled with pizza slices, corn dogs, and corn brats which is a brat cooked in the same batter as a corn dog and is very tasty. Isaac Rasmussen, 6, son of Josh and Danielle Rasmussen of Rushford seemed to really enjoy his foot long corn dog!

Cub Scouts Pack 53 volunteers Lorelei Bunke, Chloe Bunke, 13, and Caleb Bunke, 8, sold Gatorade and water for those who felt a little parched and wanted their money to go to a worthy cause.

Bingo began at the Fest Grounds Friday evening which was sponsored by St. Joseph’s Youth Group. Nolan Mueller, 14, Alora Wilkemeyer, 11, and Olivia Hoff, 14, did a great job working at the Bingo Tent as did many others in the group and provided entertainment for many who hoped to shout out that they had gotten b-i-n-g-o!

The Root River Saddle Club sponsored pony rides at the Fest Grounds which the kids lo .....
