It’s 4 AM – Do You Know Where Your Beans Are?


It’s that time of year again… time for the annual Pequot Lakes Bean Hole Days!  Last night (7/16/19), they buried the five gigantic pots of beans into the ground to cook overnight and today (7/17/19), it’s time to eat beans!  I just had to know if you could smell them cooking at 4:00 a.m…. so I stopped by Trailside Park to find out.  Turns out, I could NOT smell them cooking, but crews are ready to raise the beans at 11:30 and start serving the FREE BEANS at 12:00 today!  Festivities begin at 9:00 with the craft fair and fun for the kiddos.  Don’t miss Bean Hole Days!  I hear it’s a real gas!
