Thursday's Downtown starts up again July 8th, which is just fantastic, right? I've really missed it. The music, your neighbors, the vendors...just a great night. Especially if you're a vendor that'd like to be in front of thousands of people each week.


Thursdays Downtown's vendor application period ends May 28th at 11:49 PM, so scroll down if you are interested. If you're not familiar with Thursday's Downtown, here's how they describe it.

"Thursdays Downtown is a summer market and music festival occurring every Thursday starting July 8, 2021...The event features vendors representing more than 11 categories of products, with most items being handmade. Thursdays Downtown also features live music on two stages three times a day."


Holy smokes, writing this I'm getting excited for July! The whole event really has a community feel to it. Plus it's a street fair.

These photos are from 2019's Thursdays Downtown. The last one where we were able to get out and whoop it up. 2020 it was on, and Kudos to the RDA for making it still feel like a place we call home.

Home in Minnesota's #1 Small Town Has Awesome Views of Area State Park

According to the number one small town in the country where people actually want to live happens to be in southern Minnesota: New Ulm! So I decided to shop the houses in New Ulm and found this one that has great views of Flandreau State Park.
