It’s time to dig out Thor, Big Bertha, Ole, Sven, Lena and Baby Olga for the Pequot Lakes Bean Hole Days celebration Monday-Wednesday, July 8-10.

Thousands will gather at noon Wednesday, July 10, at Trailside Park in Pequot Lakes to share a free lunch of baked beans, a dinner roll and a glass of Culligan water.

The fun begins with the Paddle Hunt — the first clue will be released at 9 a.m. Monday, July 8.
