BAXTER - Rain didn't stop fans or Boston - for that matter - from hitting the stage Saturday night during Lakes Jam at Brainerd International Raceway, located north of Baxter on Highway 371. After a mostly clear and sunny day, rain started to come down on the BIR grounds before Boston was scheduled to take the stage. However, the weather didn't stop Boston fans, who either had an umbrella, a rain poncho or jacket or they just simply got wet. Fans chanted "Boston, Boston" in the rain until the American rock band from Boston, Mass., got on stage and performed.
