BVD 2021 posters are starting to go up across area towns. They are located at the Holiday gas station and Trucker's Inn at Sauk Centre plus the two Casey's gas stations in Melrose (as of Thursday, June 24).
Sand Volleyball and a bean bag tournament are in store for Saturday activities as well as a men's slow pitch softball tournament. To register for sand volleyball, call The Voice newspaper office and leave a contact name on the voice mail. Bean bag tournament registration will take place on site in downtown Brooten at 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 10. The tournament is set to begin at 5:30 p.m., and it will be capped at 20 or 25 teams to ensure it doesn't run all night. The BVD bean bag tournament is sponsored by Rustic Stables Stylists and the Bonanza Valley Voice.
The Saturday night entertainment features the local band Wasted Time from the Sedan-Terrace area to perform from 8:30 p.m. to midnight on main street. The street dance is sponsored by the KaDe Shack. Wasted Time is a local band known for their country and classic rock songs. They performed at BVD 2018 in Brooten, and you can see a video clip from that street dance by clicking here = https://bit.ly/3qmupKO.
