The Minnesota

Come and delight in the day.

For the 6th year we have packed the day full with holiday activities for you, friends, and families. Let us help you catch Christmas fever with caroling, surprise Santa visits, hayrides, hot beverages, delicious meals, oyster stew, crafts, Scandinavian treats, and gifts for all ages.


Gnome Fever

for All Ages

The Friends of Peterson know family members have different interests, so we provide a wide variety of activities and food to please all ages and interests.  Perhaps Mom will shop while the rest of the family is busy doing other things around town!
