July is here in full force! For those of us on the Gunflint Trail, this month brings two exciting events: the Gunflint Canoe Races and the Biggest Blueberry Contest!

The races took place on Wednesday at Gunflint Lodge, and as you might have expected, our Seagull staffers made their presence known. 😉 We are very proud of their team and individual performances! If you have never been to the races, you should make it a point to stop in next year to enjoy food, raffles, and family fun for all ages!

For our second big event of the month, we have the Biggest Blueberry Contest. We are thrilled to participate in the contest as an official weigh station. The Trail is lined with cars and people in search for the biggest blueberry of their lives! We expect great results this year because there is no shortage of berries to be found. If you find yourself along the trail and you come across an extra large one, stop into our store in we’ll be happy to weigh it for you! The Grand Prize is $100 in Trail Cash which may be used at many of our local businesses.

Thanks for following along,
