Bemidji Rotarians and local government officials broke ground for the $440,000 project on May 19. Building of the playground took place the weekend of June 16-19th and the playground is expected to be open to the public by late July. The Bemidji Rotary Club has committed to raising funds, with rallied support from the community, to support the construction of this universally accessible playground for all ages and abilities to enjoy at the Bemidji waterfront.
Show your support! There are still a few funds left to raise to complete this project initiative. Invite a Rotarian to present to a group or organization. Host a fundraiser or take-up a collection in honor of the playground. For more information, please feel welcome to contact Paul Diehl at (218) 230-0502 or Tanya Hasbargen at (218) 556-5699.

Plan to join us for the 11th Annual Lake Bemidji Dragon Boat Festival - Wednesday, August 3 - Saturday, August 6, 2016 featuring four days of fun for the entire family. After all, it’s not just about Dragon Boat racing: festival activities include great food, music, kid’s activities, a parade of teams, cultural performances, camaraderie and much more all along the shores of beautiful Lake Bemidji. Dragon Boat racing is fun, fast-paced and engaging for spectators. It’s currently the fastest growing water sport in the nation! Between racers, family, friends, volunteers and spectators, we again anticipate thousands of people at the Lake Bemidji waterfront during the course of the event.
