While cleaning the camper this weekend to "put it up for the winter", I found a pair of mittens that I had been left there since Grandma's Marathon William A Irvin 5K in June. Yes, in JUNE! We are now into September and there is definitely a Fall feeling in the air. The City of Duluth has already begun to think of winter and began to make decisions and purchases as we prepare for winter driving.
Is it really September already? Today is also the 12th and final day for the 2014 Minnesota State Fair. Labor Day is also Kids & Last Chance Day. You can enjoy music by local bands in Carousel Park, get discounts at the Mighty Midway & Kidway, and take advantage of other special bargains. Tonight, the final 2014 show in the Grandstand will be one giant sing along with Journey.
It's Labor Day Weekend. For many that means one last chance to go to the cabin, go camping, or spend some time on the beach before we get into the Fall grind of school, college, becoming chauffeur to our kids and their activities. (although the weather this weekend has been less than co operable). For those choosing the beach option, the conditions have worsened due to the wind and that has prompted the Duluth Fire Department to issue a Red Flag Warning.
A few weeks ago, this column was skeptical that Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' could reach $300 million. Now, it seems impossible that it won't. Thanks to ecstatic word of mouth, killer marketing and only one genuinely successful box office challenger (that would be 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'), Marvel's oddball space opera has managed to spend three of the past four weekends at the number one spot at the box office, giving it enough momentum to officially become the highest grossing film of 2014.
It's the last weekend for the 2014 Minnesota State Fair. If you haven't stopped by yet, visit today for FFA Day. Bring the family to visit the barns and animal competition areas for FFA livestock judging and programs. Then, it's an early start for MN Music On A Stick in the Grandstand.
