“With the long-awaited arrival of summer in the Red River Valley, it certainly has not disappointed. With the ongoing guidelines with COVID tourism and travel plans have changed for many families these past few months. Instead of flying to their destination or packing up the car and traveling to their getaway, many are choosing to stay put and enjoy the amenities in their own backyard or in this case, the river.
Longtime Crookston, resident Cathy Demarais shared in a message, “canoeing and seeing the backside of Crookston is absolutely beautiful and peaceful.” Their group of 6, are among the many who retreat to the water to relax, enjoy time with friends and family, and benefit from a laid-back physical activity.
It is wonderful to view digital moments captured of people enjoying one of the many treasures we have in Crookston. Several have shared these images with the Chamber office to use as another marketing tool to GROW Crookston.
Let’s continue the ongoing efforts and conversations which will allow easier access onto our river to enhance and grow recreational fun for our community.
Crookston Area Chamber Executive Director
