  • Alexander Ramsey Park, the largest city park in Minnesota, has been one of Redwood Falls’s biggest attractions for over a hundred years, and it’s not finished growing and improving yet. Every year, the Friends of the Park hold a fundraiser to gather money for park improvement projects. Among the most recent: the extensive remodeling of the zoo area and river walkway. Current planned improvements include a quarter-million dollar upgrade of the Zeb Gray shelter near the park’s west entrance, and improved signs and trails. This year’s Ramsey Park Jamboree will be held Wednesday, June 11 at the Redwood Area Community Center from 4-8 p.m. Among the activities planned: • Vogels Exotic Animals shows throughout the evening • Silent auction • Blue grass and fold music by the Puddle Jumpers. • 4-H petting zoo • Antique tractor display • Rich-Nes alpacas on display • Kids games and Bound Around Inflatables (.25 cents per ticket, or $10 wristband. • Performances by the Redwood Dance Center. In addition, Tersteeg’s grill will be serving from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Other vendors will have root beer floats and cotton candy. Support the continuing park improvements and have fun at the jamboree Wednesday evening!
