Mike Olson has a way of spreading fear when the month of October comes around. Along with other members of the Wadena County Fair Board and a large group of volunteers, Olson has built yet another version of the Fear Factory on the fairgrounds in Wadena. Stretched out between two livestock buildings the Fear Factory is designed to put the creeps into as many paying customers as it can. The Fear Factory has been rated one of Minnesota’s top haunted venues.
Spring break ends for walleyes and northern pike Saturday as Minnesota's fishing season expands to include two terrific and tasty fighters. The walleye-northern pike fishing season is always good for a huge exodus from cities and towns to Minnesota's greatest treasure - our thousands and thousands of lakes. Wadena and the surrounding communities will watch this mass migration to the lakes like spectators at a parade.
