Berrrmidji Kids’ Ice Fishing event

BEMIDJI, MINNESOTA (January 27, 2012) – Just when I thought I had tracked down all the various spellings of our First City on the Mississippi, I have discovered yet another. Although it’s captivating to continue discovering new spellings for Bemidji, I’m also thrilled there are so many events taking place during the cold weather months to provide the Bemidji community with opportunities to stay active.

On Sunday, February 19, 2012, from 1:30pm-3:30pm, the park naturalist at Lake Bemidji State Park will be holding an event called Berrrmidji Kids Can Ice Fishing. This event is for kids ages 8-15 and the kids will be ice fishing for perch on Lake Bemidji. Enter Lake Bemidji State Park just off County State Aid Highway 20. For more information, call #218-308-2300 or visit the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) website at

For reference, here is my previous list of Bemidji winter events with unique spellings. I hope to continue to add to this list, starting with the new addition of the upcoming Berrrmidji Kids Can Ice Fishing event.
• Brrrrmidji New Years Bike Ride (1/1/12)
• Brrrmidji Polar Daze (1/20/12-1/28/12)
• Jaycees Brrrmidji Plunge (1/21/12)

Have a wonderful weekend!
