Celebrate Angle Days August 4th and 5th

If you haven’t been there, it is one of the most beautiful areas on earth.  If you have been there, there is a good chance you continue to return.  The NW Angle and Islands area is the northernmost point of the continental U.S.  It is the start of the 14,552 islands that make this area special.  Yes, the geography, sheer beauty and wide variety of wildlife is incredible.  But there is an angle in these parts some don’t see that is also very special, the people and the culture.

As a smaller community made up of about 150 year round residents between Angle Inlet, MN and the islands in the area, folks here are very self sufficient and tend to lend a helping hand to a neighbor when needed.  In a remote environment that can be harsh at times when the weather whips up, this is how people survive and get by without all of the conveniences of a conventional city.

It is with this spirit that welcomes all to Angle Days on August 4th and 5th.  The activities are numerous with a fish fry, volleyball and an outdoor movie to start things out on Friday evening.

Saturday is a full day with something for everyone.  Maybe you are interested in  trapshooting tournament, a golf cart obstacle course or the flea market.  There will also be a chili cook off, homemade blueberry deserts with freshly picked NW Angle blueberries.  There will be live music, a quilt raffle, and so much more!

Sunday, enjoy a community breakfast to wrap up the weekend events and festivities.

Remember, everyone is welcome.  What a fun weekend.  Maybe even mix in a bit of fishing?  If you have never been to the NW Angle, check out directions here.  And there are over a dozen lodging facilities to stay if you are interested.  Fishing is excellent in this part of Lake of the Woods.  Bring your own boat, rent a boat or jump in with a guide for a real adventure.

Summer goes fast in MN.  Community festivals are certainly part of MN and part of summer.  If you have some free time in your schedule the weekend of August 4-5, 2017, consider celebrating this unique and beautiful part of the world.
