Bonanza Valley Day kicks off in Brooten
Three days of activities are underway
The 45th annual Bonanza Valley Days town celebration is underway in Brooten! The weekend kicked off with an outdoor church service on Thursday night in the city park that was led by Pastor Steve Bovendam of Brooten. A crowd of almost 40 attended worship and heard God's Word in a beautiful setting with fabulous weather - a light breeze, little humidity and a terrific sunset off to the west.
If you haven't grabbed a copy of the Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper, you will want to do that! It is packed full of stories and photos and includes a great deal of coverage for the upcoming BVD weekend. The back page features the full list of activities in Brooten.
