Memorial Day Weekend is the official kick-off of the summer season here in Minnesota.
For a lot of us, it means vacations to plan, local community festivals to attend, places to explore and a whole slew of things to see and do ... and eat!
West central Minnesotans and those who plan to visit here (we hope there are a lot of you!) may want to start their summer planning by visiting Explore Minnesota's North Central/West Region Web page. It includes a list of local events and links to area tourist bureaus.
