Tri-State Outdoor Festival Opens Friday

Are you looking for some inexpensive fun for the entire family this weekend?   Consider checking out the Tri-State Outdoor Festival being held in St. Charles, Minnesota—just a short two-hour drive southeast from the Twin Cities.

Tri_state_festivalThe event, primarily for kids, promises to be a fun-filled weekend with an emphasis on introducing youth to various outdoor activities.   Daily skill events include many hunting and fishing related games such as: air rifle range, BB gun/slingshot shoot, skeet simulation, trout pond, rock climbing wall, fly-fishing obstacle course, kids archery shoot, tomahawk throw, plus much more.

The Tri-State Outdoor Festival was held for the first time last year at the Winona County Fairgrounds drawing a crowd of over 6,000 attendees.   This year organizers are expecting an even bigger turnout for this family-oriented outdoor experience.

Aside from the kid games, adults can take part in a 3D pop-up archery course (bring your bow) and enjoy over 100 vendor booths promoting a wide array of hunting and fishing related items.   Still need that deer rack or shed antler scored?   Official measurers from Boone and Crockett Club, The Pope and Young Club, as well as the North American Shed Hunters Club will be on hand to provide free measuring services.
