Day 1 – Home to Willmar, MN

Join us as we take you to our wonderful hometown and surrounding area. We will arrive in Willmar and go directly to the Convention & Visitors Center where we will be greeted by our mayor and the Queen candidates, as we will enjoy brunch together. Then let us show you our town as we give you a guided driving tour. Next we will tour Willmar’s nationally acclaimed chocolate factory, Mr. B’s Chocolates, where you will delight in the ‘melt in your mouth divine chocolate,” and some wine tasting from the local wine shop next door. Our next stop will be at our new R&J office building where you will be treated to a tour by one of our friendly staff, and finish up with homemade scones and coffee. We will then check into our hotel, the Holiday Inn Express for a little rest. Our evening meal will take place at The Oaks, a restaurant overlooking the golf course on one of our lakes. After a full day, we retire to our hotel for a good night’s rest.

Today’s lunch will be served at the Little Crow Country Club. Then we will enjoy exploring New London’s unique, specialty shops, offering a fun variety of merchandise.

We arise early so we can head over to the Firehouse for the Fireman’s Pancake Feed. Then we get settled in our reserved seating at Willmar’s Grande Day Parade, an annual tradition that celebrates Willmar Fest. We shall enjoy a picnic noon lunch at one of our many beautiful parks today. Next we are going to tour a 800-head Dairy Farm that is fully automatic, an amazing thing to see! Afterwards we go to a Music Café, Jazz & Java for our dinner tonight. We will be entertained while dining by The Great Times Band, hosted by the in-house Music Co. We will then move out to the patio to enjoy fireworks over the lake. Spectacular sights we can promise you!

We will hope for a beautiful morning, as we set sail on a brunch cruise on The Green Lake Cruise Boat, a perfect opportunity to savor great moments in small town America.
