Museums have festive Sunday

Crookston, Minn. ―

Crookston museums held their annual fall celebrations on Sunday, both of
which were very well attended, with lots of activities for people of all

The Harvest Festival at Red River Valley Sugar Beet Museum had visitors
trying their hand at beet harvesting and wheat threshing the
old-fashioned way, as well as learning about the many pieces of vintage
equipment spread across the museum grounds.

Pioneer Day at Polk County Museum had "pioneer" women preparing and
serving their signature fry bread, various demonstrations and musical
entertainment by three different groups: O'Neill Family Musicians,
Greater Crookston Area Mens Chorus and The WoodPicks. The additional
music this year was made possible by funds from Minnesota's Arts and
Cultural Heritage program through the clean water, land and legacy
