Finally, the weather was kind to Wrenshall.
After two years of rained-out and rained-on festivities, this weather cleared in time for the parade to start during this year's Brickyard Days event.
There was something for everyone this year. A horseshoe throwing competition, go carts courtesy of the National Guard, the annual fireman's challenge, belly dancing, races, fabulous food and more.
According to long-time community resident and former mayor Hugh Line, the popular small town summer event was first organized by the Wrenshall Development Corporation in 1985 as a means of raising money to build what was to be the town’s first and only restaurant, The Brickyard. The celebration proved so successful that it has gone on long after the restaurant was built. Today it continues to be an opportunity for residents of the community and surrounding areas to come together for a good time and a chance for local groups – particularly from the school – to fund raise for the upcoming year’s projects.
