Like any event you’ve had to wait in anticipation for a duration of time, it seems to go by in a blink of an eye, and over entirely too quick. That’s how I felt about the Arctic Cat 60th Homecoming Collectors Show held this past weekend.
It was brilliant to hold the show in conjunction with the 120th Annual Pennington County Fair. The entire fairgrounds was hopping with activity for families when they weren’t busy taking in all the Arctic Cat sights and stories in the Engelstad Arena.
Reflecting back, I’ve left Thief River Falls completely revved up over the Arctic Cat brand. Much like the 50th, an Arctic Cat energy engulfed the town and was infectious for enthusiasts. Here’s a look into Thursday when I arrived. Ill cover the remaining event in the coming days.
Thursday was set-up day, and it was pretty cool to see a line of trailers going through town headed to the Ralph Engelstad Arena. For me, this was the start of the Arctic Cat energy beginning to encompass the town.
That’s it for now. In the coming days Ill share the people, products and photos of Friday and Saturday’s show in a Part II and III. Enjoy! – Kale
