Northwoods Adventure – Easter Eggstravaganza

Easter may be a few weeks away, but that didn’t stop kids of all ages from coming to the Westgate Mall in Brainerd in search of some spring time fun. Kids and their families enjoyed a day of crafts, candy, face painting, and even a little Easter Egg hunt. Although, making...

Northwoods Adventure – Brainerd St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The Brainerd St. Patrick’s Day parade started 15 years ago with just a garden tractor and an idea. The celebration is a little bigger than when it first began, but that only makes the day that much more fun. This year was blessed with some beautiful weather, bringing out a larger...

Northwoods Adventure – Spring Break Skiing

Florida, Hawaii, or really anywhere with warm weather is usually what Minnesota kids on Spring Break dream for. But the ski hill was the destination for some of those Brainerd High School students on break this week. And despite being an unlikely spring break destination, Mount...

Northwoods Adventure – Frozen Fore

When you think of golfing, you think of green grass and summertime. Now ask people at the Frozen Fore over the weekend, and you might get a response of snow, ice, and cold. Golfers brave the cold every year to golf nine holes in the event known as the “World’s Largest Golf and...

Northwoods Adventure – Indoor Disc Golf

The Brainerd/Baxter Youth Center was founded in 2009, and is commonly referred to as TheShop. Needing a break from the cold weather, TheShop hosted a disc golf tournament on Saturday, but this one was a little different. The contest was all about the short game, and how you could...

Northwoods Adventure – One Lunger 100

Snowmobiles and snow; they’re like Abbott and Costello, or Bert and Ernie. They just go together. One can’t work without the other. But, the One Lunger 100 Vintage snowmobile race is the exception to that rule. The 100-mile race is in its 18th year of existence, and no matter the...

Northwoods Adventure – Snowless in Minnesota

Sleepless in Seattle? More like snow-less in Minnesota. And although the lack of snow has made getting around easier, area groups and their events have suffered. Two events in particular have been the Pequot Lakes Brush Pilots Antique Snowmobile Rendezvous, and the Northland...

Northwoods Adventure – Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza

It was a sunny, unseasonably warm day when anglers took to the ice Saturday for the 25th annual Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza. The horn to start the event sounded sharply at noon, and exactly two minutes later Zach Shepard came sprinting in a race to register the...

Northwoods Adventure – Ice Safety

Unpredictable… that’s the best way to describe lake ice. And, with this winter being somewhat bipolar, the ice has been a little more unpredictable. The freezing and subzero temperatures in the previous weeks did help the ice to thicken, but with a warm up on the horizon,...
