    GO TO A POW WOW!

    by 1_summer Updated Mar 25, 2004

    THERE ARE POWWOWS NEAR ABERDEEN THROUGHOUT SUMMER...YOU MAY ALSO EXPERIENCE A CATTLE DRIVE NEARBY OR VISIT ONE OF THE LOCAL HUTTERITE COLONIES. ABERDEEN HAS AN ABUNDANCE OF LAKES & RIVERS FOR FISHING, BOATING, CAMPING AND SKIING...AND IF YOU ARRIVE IN LATE AUGUST, THE BROWN COUNTY FAIR IS A REAL BLAST! THERE WILL BE 4-H DISPLAYS, CONTESTS, BOOTHS, RIDES, FOOD GALORE (EVEN A BEER GARDEN!) A DEMOLITION DERBY, TRACTOR PULL AND LOTS OF EXCELLENT LIVE ENTERTAINMENT! ABERDEEN ALSO HAS AN ANNUAL ARTS IN THE PARK EACH SUMMER FOR ARTISTS FROM ALL OVER THE STATES TO DISPLAY AND SELL THEIR ARTISTIC CREATIONS AND THERE'S LOTS OF ETHNIC FOOD AND FUNI (HAVE YOU EVER TASTED KNIPFLE? STRUDLE? CHISLIC? PASTIES?) AND T'S A SUPER WAY TO CHAT WITH PEOPLE YOU MIGHT NOT ORDINARILY MEET!

    DON'T MISS THE BOONIES!

    HIKING AT SAND LAKE

    THESE ARE SOME OF OUR COUNTRY AREAS THAT HAVE AN ABUNDANCE OF WILDLIFE AND ARE FAIRLY REMOTE. KEEP TO THE TRAILS IF YOU'RE UNFAMILIAR WITH THE REGION...AND WEAR GOOD WALKING SHOES OR HIKING BOOTS. TAKE ALONG SOME BINOCULARS AND A CAMERA TOO! I DON.T RECOMMEND COMMERCIAL SKEETER SPRAYS SO IF YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN OR GET SOME ORGANIC TYPE YOU'RE LOTS BETTER OFF BUT DEFINITELY PREPARE YOURSELF BECAUSE THE SKEETERS ARE BAD, ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT! WITH THE PREVALENCE OF WEST NILE VIRUS, TRANSMITTED BY MOSQUITOS, PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR PETS! THE PHOTO IS AT SAND LAKE WILDLIFE REFUGE, NEAR ABERDEEN.

    Hutterite Colony Tours

    by BLSM Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Go to the CVB(Convention & Visitor Bereau) Ask about a visit to a Hutterite Colony. A religious group similar to the Amish in their religion but the oppisite in their practice. They live in groups and operate under the policy of all for the group. No TVs or radios, but the business is very high top of the line. Very big tractors with GPS, computerized hog houses and dairy. Men have the control. Women can not drive or go anywhere except with their husband or another MARRIED man, then only in groups.
