Crazy Days date changed to avoid conflict with fair [UPDATED]Published 11:22am Friday, June 28, 2013 Updated 11:28am Friday, June 28, 2013
Crazy Days in downtown Fergus Falls has been rescheduled to July 25 through July 28.
The change is an effort to not compete with the West Otter Tail County Fair, which is July 17 through July 20.
Several merchants wanted the change and the Chamber of Commerce will support the event with its new dates.
Downtown sidewalk sales will be featured July 25. Car dealers are encouraged to bring down their inventory of affordable cars to park downtown on Lincoln Avenue to generate some interest and sales for them.
Merchants are encouraged to bring merchandise on the sidewalk and street.
The Fergus Falls Finance, Personnel and Development Committee Wednesday recommended closing Lincoln Avenue (from Cascade to Union) from 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. July 25 for Crazy Days.
