14th annual Rhubarb Festival kicks off

Posted:
LANESBORO, Minn. (KTTC) -- -

Saturday morning marked the 14th annual Rhubarb Festival in Lanesboro.

The festival is always held the first Saturday of June. The Rhubarb Festival began as lark to enliven the local Farmers Market.  

Lanesboro's Rhubarb Festival is a free, family friendly festival.

It featured a taste test of different kinds of rhubarb foods, and there was a fashion show, an exotic zoo, art, and vendors.

There were games for everyone including the Stalk Throw, Green Eggs and Rhubarb, Chopstick pick-up, largest leaf and more...with great prizes for all winners.
