“The Nisswa Chamber is so excited to have our events planned and we are ready to celebrate,” Pam Dorion, chamber president, said via email. “It was hard to see the town without all the smiles from happy tourists and locals out and about.”

Crosslake Chamber Director Cindy Myogeto said via email: “Spring refers to a season, but also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation and renewal, all words which perfectly describe Crosslake this spring more than ever before.

“Following a long 13-month stretch of shutdowns, restrictions and angst, we are excited to see and welcome more and more visitors, campers, resort and cabin dwellers and new residents to Crosslake and our surrounding communities,” she said.
