      EVENT DETAILS
      2014 Bean Hole Days and Arts & Crafts Fair - Pequot Lakes Brainerd Lakes Chamber

      It's time to dig out Thor, Big Bertha, Ole, Sven, Lena and Baby Olga for the Pequot Lakes Bean Hole Days celebration July 8 - 9. It's a time for thousands to gather as they share a free lunch of baked beans, a dinner roll, and a glass of Culligan water. The fun begins with the Paddle Hunt - your first clue will be released at 9 a.m. July 7. On Tuesday night, the baked beans are buried in the ground. And on Wednesday, the celebration culminates with the raising of the beans, a Queen and King Bean Coronation, an arts and crafts fair, food market, children's games, and of course, lunch!  

      July 8:
      6 p.m.:  Burying of the Beans Ceremony
      The beans, prepared from Paul Bunyan's secret recipe behind locked doors, are buried in five huge cast iron kettles and cooked over a wood fire during the night. Join us for this special ceremony! The largest kettle, THOR, is on display by the Pequot Lakes Chamber building.

      July 9:
      9 a.m.-4 p.m.: Craft Fair  and Concessions along the Paul Bunyan Trail
      11:15 a.m.: Coronation Ceremony - Who will be this year's Queen or King Bean?
      11:30 a.m.: Raising of the beans
      12 p.m. : Serving of the Beans - The incredibly friendly volunteers serve a free and delicious bowl of baked beans, dinner roll, and beverage to thousands of attendees.

      Commemorative T-Shirts and Bowls will be sold July 7 - 9 as supplies last at the Pequot Lakes Welcome Center in Trailside Park.
