Happy May! It really feels like spring is here, and with the spring season brings a busier Wabasha! May kicks off with the Spring Seasonal Boutiques open May 4th to the 21st. Make a plan to stop and visit Grandpa's Barn, the Anderson House Boutique, and Laura's Treasures, open 10:00am to 5:00pm every day. 

The boutiques are the perfect place to pick up decorations for your home or a gift for birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, or just because! The 100 Mile Garage Sale also kicks off May 4th - what a great weekend to get some serious shopping in!

Wabasha is lucky to play host to two great fishing tournaments this May, as well. The 19th Annual Dick Hiley St. Jude Bass Classic is May 5th to the 7th, and the
Brian Robison Reel 'Em In Foundation Open Tournament  is May 12th to the 14th. Each tournament is sure to be a great event for a wonderful cause. 

On May 18th, the next Chamber Chew is happening at Hill's Hardware starting at 5:30pm. The Chamber Chew is an opportunity for us to come together to connect, network, and engage in the life of our Chamber and members. All are welcome to attend! 

Of course, we cannot talk about May without mentioning Taste of Wabasha at the National Eagle Center. Another great event and opportunity to sample the delicious food our area restaurants have! 

May sure is a busy month! Make sure to visit our website for all the latest news and give our office a call at (651) 565-4158 if you have any questions or if there is anything we can help you with. Have a fantastic month! 

All the best,
