Tour of Downtown Pelican Rapids
Come and celebrate Otter Tail County’s 150th anniversary with a tour of historic downtown Pelican Rapids on Friday, July 20, 7:00 p.m.
Sponsored by the Otter Tail County Historical Society, the tour will explore the history of downtown buildings and businesses as well as stories of people and events that define the community’s history. First person accounts of the community abound thanks to scores of oral histories conducted by Marguerite Andrews, the grand dame of Pelican Rapids history. We will hear about the legendary con man Lord Gordon Gordon, the exploits of constable Herm Slatten and the fishing exploits of Lynnville Pucket. History is in our own backyards, come and discover that during the tour of downtown Pelican Rapids.
Cost for the tour is $6. For more information contact the Otter Tail County Historical Society at 736-6038.
One of the things that make Pelican Rapids great is its heritage of ethnic diversity.
On Saturday, July 21 that mix of cultures will be presented at the Friendship Festival in Sherin Park from 11 am to 4 pm.
Multi-food and entertainment will be among the highlights of the celebration. The Friendship Festival, which was hosted annually through 2014, has been revived this year.
Food options will include Bosnian, Mexican, Vietnamese, Somali, Scandinavian, Nepali, German and American. Ethnic specialty foods range from Polish brats to Somali Sambusa to oriental egg rolls to Mexican fare.
The Friendship Festival also presents a global mix of entertainment:
A Somali Dance Troupe from the Somali Cultural Museum in Minneapolis
FolkloricoGuadalupano, a group which performs Mexican dances
The Tickwood String Band, a quartet that plays old time American music
Mariachi Jalisco de Minnesota, a mariachi band from the Twin Cities are among the featured entertainment.
Kids events will include an oobleck walk, a chance to make tissue paper flowers, an opportunity to decorate nylon shoulder bags with markers, face painting, a piñata, and a bouncy house.
This Festival is supported by local and regional organizations: a Lake Region Arts Council Legacy grant, an Otter Tail County Historical Society grant, a Lake Region Electric Operation RoundUp grant, a West Central Initiative Fund Community Change Makers grant and many local donors and volunteers.
Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or a blanket and to wear traditional clothing if you have it.

Join the Otter Tail County Historical Society for a tour of historic downtown Battle Lake on Friday, July 27, 7 p.m. The tour begins in front of the Lakes Area Community Center.
What do a prominent Minnesota architect, a United States Presidential candidate, and an infamous bank robbery have in common? Each has a connection to places in Battle Lake. This tour of Battle Lake uncovers architectural treasures and brings to life forgotten stories of businesses, characters and events that helped define the community. In fact, rumor has it that a larger-than-life Battle Lake cafe owner will make a personal appearance.
Come and celebrate Otter Tail County’s 150th anniversary by strolling the streets of downtown Battle Lake. It is a great way to connect with one of Minnesota’s most quintessential lake communities.
Cost for the tour is $6. For more information contact OTCHS at 218-736-6038 or find us on Facebook.
