Eel Pout Festival, Walker, MN 2010

Now in its 31st year, Eelpout is the fishing festival where almost nobody fishes. Let's face it, this is Mardi Gras on ice and each year 10,000 people visit the temporary town on Leech Lake to party. Main Street, a mile-long path on the lake, is lined with party houses populated with drinking teams. Snowmobiles and four-wheelers towing couches and picknic tables cruise the street to form a haphazard parade. On the last day of the festival, pouters pack up camp with dreams of doing it all over again the next year.

We had so much fun at Mike and Diane's on our last day in Sturgis. It was a tearful event-- even Amanda and I started crying during the vows. Diane and Mike clearly have a playful and loving connection and are inspiration to us all. It was incredible to be a part of their day! Thanks again to the ladies at the Sturgis Hitching Post hooking us up with these amazing couples. -Lacey
