An opening concert featuring Monroe Crossing will be held at 7 p.m. Sept. 13 in the Enderlin Auditorium.

Midweek events include a bean cook-off, magic show, fishing derby, duck race and fish fry.

The recipe contest will be Sept. 18, along with an open house at the museum, comedy show at the city auditorium, trivia contest and street dance.

Most events will happen Sept. 19, including a pancake breakfast, quilt show, 5k and 10k run-walk, softball tournament, car show, parade, turkey supper and street dance.
