Is One Minnesota Town’s Summer Festival Going To End After This Year?
WILD WEST DAYS 2023!
Today kicks off the first day of the annual "Wild West Days" in Zimmerman, Minnesota. Wild West Days has been a tradition for so many years, that I actually remember "Wild West Days" from my childhood, and that was a long time ago!
Wild West Days will be running today, Thursday, May 25th through Memorial Day, May 29th, 2023.
VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP FOR NEXT YEAR'S EVENT
I visited the Wild West Days website to check out the schedule of events for the week and noticed that there is an incredible need for volunteers to keep this event running. It sounds like only 5 people have been running the event over the past few years, and they are asking for your help. They are looking for volunteers to sign up this year to keep the event running smoothly in the future. It is a community event after all, and I can't imagine Zimmerman without "Wild West Days!"
If you would like to sign up to volunteer your talents for next year, they would love to speak with you. You can click HERE to sign up to be a volunteer to help.
