Bemidji serves as 'capital for a day' during Statehood Week
BEMIDJI, Minn. (AP) - It's Statehood Week celebrating Minnesota's 150th anniversary, and on Monday that means Bemidji is "Capital for a Day."
Five cities in different areas of the state came out ahead in a voting competition late last year. Thief River Falls takes the spotlight Tuesday, followed by Detroit Lakes Wednesday, New Ulm Thursday and Winona on Friday.
Bemidji's festivities Monday include a synchronized community bell ringing and a speech by Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
