5/18/2017 12:22:00 PM Come paddle with friends on Memorial Day; Chisago City Farmers Market open
If you are looking for something fun and inexpensive to do over Memorial weekend, we have something extremely fun for you. Grab your paddle and kayak and take part in the annual Memorial Day Paddle. It is a chance to see our local lakes in a more serene way than using a motor.
They have broken the paddle into three levels, the grand route, the scenic paddle and the easy paddle. The grand route covers six lakes with three portages. Paddlers will meet at 8:30 am at Ojiketa Regional Park. The scenic paddle covers two lakes with one stop. Paddlers will meet at 9 am at Ki Chi Saga Park on Glader Avenue in Lindstrom. The easy paddle lasts about an hour and will meet behind Pizza Pub at 10:30 am.
Each route will pick up with other paddlers and eventually end up at Allemansratt Park for lunch. Remember to bring water, sunscreen, bug spray and a life jacket. Make sure to bring a picnic lunch for the park and a dessert to share with your fellow paddlers. Should be a great day.
This Friday, Chisago City invites you to the first Farmers Market of the year. They will begin with a plant sale. The market will run every Friday from now until October. Thankfully, for people like me, they do accept debit and credit cards as well as cash.

Fishing opener has come and gone and we are in full swing. Here is a tip I learned a few years back that keeps other boaters happy. When you put your boat in at the landing, make sure you tie it up on the outside of the dock so others can put in and take out their boats. It’s easy and it keeps everyone happy.
