Brainerd Lakes Marketplace is March 28-29

Spring means Brainerd Lakes Marketplace. This event, sponsored by Essentia Health, is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 28 and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 29, at the Brainerd Area Civic Center.

It features an “open air” market atmosphere where visitors may stroll in the park-like setting, enjoying local fare, live demonstrations, camaraderie and browsing Brainerd Lakes Marketplace vendors.

Admission is only $3 per adult or $5 for two adults; those 17 and younger may attend for free. Tickets are available at any office of the Brainerd Lakes Chamber or at the door.

All paid tickets offer the chance to win door prizes and the grand prize of two round-trip tickets from Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, courtesy of SkyWest, a Delta Skyteam airline. (Drawings will be at the top of the hour, starting at 10 a.m. on Friday and ending at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Those attending must be present to win all prizes except the grand prize.)
