The City of Rushford, Minn. was definitely the place to be seen the week of July 15-23, 2013 for a person looking for a good time. The week began with the Queen Pageant in the high school gymnasium on Monday, July 15. The results of the pageant were: Little Miss - Makenzie Knutson, Runners up - Hannah Highum and Annika Bakkum-Ekern. Queen - Mariah Olson, Attendants - Hunter Dunbar, Hailey Atkinson, and Leah Leisen. On Tuesday a Teen Swim was held at the Aquatic Center for the younger residents to get together and have some fun.

Wednesday brought the Car Cruise Night with fancy cars of different varieties out on the road. Also on Wednesday was the Rushford Peterson Valley Farmers Market at Creekside park. While parents chose their favorite fresh products and listened to music, the children could visit the petting zoo.

A wine tasting, sponsored by the American Legion, took place on Thursday at the American Legion while the kids cut loose at the Teen Dance at the Fest Tent.

Things started gearing up for a busy weekend on Friday with the Food Vendors selling their goodies on the Fest Grounds. The Bingo Tent was a popular place on Friday with Brenda O’Hare doing a great job of calling numbers and waiting to hear “Bingo!” from the players.

The Fest Grounds were full of people going in all different directions to the various events on Friday including Pony Rides which children enjoyed. Mutton Bustin had a large crowd watching as the children tried to stay on the sheep as long as they could possibly hold on. There were two groups one being ages four and five years olds and the second being six and seven year olds.

A few of the children had second thoughts and decided maybe next year as they climbed off the sheep and back to their parents with the crowd giving them each a round of applause for their attempts. Every child who participated received a ribbon and a bandana. The top three finishers in each category received plaques and were invited to ride in the parade on Saturday. “Moose” Hagedorn, who organized the Mutton Bustin event did a great job and provided an entertaining evening for many families. Helping “Moose” corral the sheep coming out of the gate was Bruce Nelson of Wykoff, Minn. These two men sometimes had trouble keeping a hold of the quick animals but seemed to be enjoying every minute of it.
