Crazy Days of Summer

Crazy Days of Summer has us rocking around the clock in this fun three-day 1950 Themed event. This is three days you will undoubtedly want to be in Roseau.

Crazy Days 2023

Roseau Crazy Day Street Sales anchor the festivities with businesses taking their bargains to the street. We can’t say that prices will be the same as in the 1950s, but you will be in for some DEALS! Get those $5 Transfer’s T’s, Coast True Value, and Scott’s Hardware deals and go across town to stop at Ace Hardware or  Annie’s for special closeouts. Peace Grenades will have a selection to start your back-to-school shopping. Not only will you find our shops with deals, but we will have special guests joing the businesses with baked goods, crafts, and jewelry. Grab a slice of fresh pizza pie at Jake’s Pizza or a corndog from Bjerks. Bake of the Woods croissants can help with that sweet tooth.  See our business owners compete for the Best 1950 Costume and stroll past cars from the 1940s to the latest on the lot at Roseau County Ford.

Support young business owners by buying from their booths. These young CEOs are jumping into business early. You will find crafts, soaps, dog treats, and so much more at the  Kids- Prenuer Sales taking place on the North end of Crazy Days. You will find free make-and-take kids’ crafts and a bouncy house in this area.

1950s dog show

Don’t miss the Pet Show hosted by Pet Pantry and Supply. Their 1950s theme contest will have us all having “Happy Days” again. Can our pup do the sock hop, or your cat show off a bee hive do?  See who takes the Best of Show in the Bee’s Knee Contest.

When the Lights flash on the Fire Truck, be ready for the Ping Pong Ball Drop. Hundreds of balls and prizes will be tossed by our fire crew. To win, catch a ball and bring it to the business listed to redeem your prize. We have special prizes for the adults in the audience this year, including shirts and Polaris Swag.

Thursday will wrap up with the Holla Rock and Rollaz at the Gabebo Concert Night Series in Riverview Park. The oldest will get you out of your seats with a little Shake, Rattle, and Rock and Roll. Bring a lawn chair unless you will be dancing.

Friday will bring sidewalk sales curbside during the day. In the evening, select businesses will host a Wine, Beer, and Dine Walk. For $25  you will receive ten tokens to use at companies around town. Grab some wine, craft beer, or dine at one of the shops along the way. A little birding told us that Roseau Liquor Store has a special something something going on. Be sure to make that a stop on your list.  You will find sliders at Coast True Value, Cow Creek Bakery at Transfers and a special 1950 themed drink at Legends Not a drinker, no worries there will be over 10 non-alcoholic stops for you to take in including fresh blueberry lemonade.

Get those bikes ready for the On the Glow Bike Parade. You can purchase glowsticks at Transfer’s Unlimited or ROAR for only $5 a bundle or decorate your bike with your own lights and meet us at the Moose Sculpture in the City Center North Lot at 8PM. Consider pushing a stroller, pulling a wagon, riding in a wheelchair or just walking along. Everyone is welcome. Check out the event page on Facebook for more details.

Saturday will be filled with outdoor fun. Compete in the 5K Splash and Dash hosted by ROAR. Watch the Duck Races on the Center Street Bridge to splash around with the Purple People Eaters that invaded the Splash Pad.  

This will be some CRAZY DAYS of SUMMER, and you won’t want to miss out on the celebration.
