Before winter passes, the Downtown Business Association welcome entries in our winter-spring photo contes. The deadline is Saturday, April 30. Max Bailey Photography sponsors the contest and awards a professionally finished, 11X14-inch print of the winning photograph in each of four categories: Park Rapids Area Lake Scenes, Recreation, Wildlife and Main Street Scenes. The contest is intended to capture and celebrate the beauty and unique character of Park Rapids and the surrounding area. Contest rules, guidelines and the entry form are available on this website.
