A great thank you to the residents and businesses of Breezy Point again this year for the citizens appreciation days event on May 2. We have attended this great family event for several years now and the pig roast is always a good feed. All you can eat and it's absolutely free. The addition this year of the classic car show and the fly-in/airshow just added to the event. And best of all, it was all free. To see the time and energy that these car buffs and airplane buffs put into their cars and planes along with the pig roast made this a fabulous event for the whole family. The airplane flyovers were a great addition. Nowhere will you find a more family oriented event in the Brainerd lakes area for one low price - free. No one left there unhappy. Except for the one person that had to call the sheriff's office and complain about the safety. In attendance were fire trucks, ambulances, sheriff's department, city police and the Civil Air Patrol. There could be no more safety than that. Maybe next year this individual could find a better venue for his/her family to attend rather than bringing them to this expensive and dangerous event. The event was completely free and entertaining for the entire family. You can't get better than that. Next year, stay home or go to some other tree hugging event elsewhere. Bring your wallet. Once again, Breezy Point, a fabulous job and keep up the good work. See you next year.
