More fun south of the border

Small-town folks just south of the border will kick off mid-June with a hot bowl of Oatmeal Days.

St. Ansgar Oatmeal Days will be held this Saturday and Sunday in Iowa. Events start Saturday with carb-burning, 2-by-4 bike race and continue with a beanbag tournament, business displays, and fun in the park with an obstacle course, speed throw challenges, face painting, rock climbing and more.

Evening events will include a fireman’s pork chop feed at the fire station, Miss St. Ansgar crowning at 6 p.m. and a parade at 7. The events close on Sunday with a kayak and canoe race at 11 a.m.; registration is at 10. For more information about Oatmeal Days, visit
