An Ode to the Moose

Filed under: Event, Fairs — Mary Poggione @ 7:51 am

Moose Madness, all rights reserved by www.grandmarias.comIt’s Moose Madness this weekend in Grand Marais, MN (Oct 16-18), and there are tons of fun moose-related events going on all three days.

For the bookish, we recommend the poetry contest. Pick up an entry form in person at Moose Central (a.k.a. Grand Marais/Gunflint Trail Visitor Information Center at  13 North Broadway) and compose your very own moose haiku or limerick.

If you feel a need to get some constructive criticism on your work, you can read it at the Mocha Moose Cafe and Poetry Salon (right next door to the visitor center) at 9 PM on Saturday. All entries are due by noon on Sunday at Moose Central.

If you are unable to travel to Grand Marais this weekend, we would be happy to post (after reviewing–we are family friendly) your moose haikus in the comments.
