Welcome to Nisswa

Welcome to my Nisswa blog. It is because I am so emotionally attached to this tiny resort town, that blogging about it is truly a "labor of love". Nisswa has been a part of my life since before I can remember.

I hope you enjoy it.

Flat Jessie Meets Elvis

Even though "Unflat Jessie" had to stay home for some surgery, Flat Jessie was able to attend the Elvis concert and have her picture taken with the Breezy Point star. Yeah Flat Jessie.

Seeing Elvis in the rain at Breezy Point

It was a very wet early evening but it cleared for a great concert. Chris Olson was in fine voice as Elvis.

Beautiful Brainerd Babes

These Beautiful Babes are the result of Oxtrot '08, a collaborative effort of The Crossing Arts Alliance, Avalon Studios, and the Brainerd Lakes Chamber of Commerce . The Babes were decorated by local artists and auctioned off with the proceeds going to various charities. They are now scattered at various homes and businesses in the area.

My thanks to Bill Hughes for the great pictures.

EEL POUT Festival

31st Annual EEL POUT Festival Slide Show

The EEl Pout Festival takes place annually in Walker, MN. Walker is about a 40 minute drive north of Nisswa. As you can see from these pictures, it's a wild a crazy time. This is the one time of the year that you are glad to see an eel pout at the end of your line.
