Lester Park, Duluth, MN Neighborhood

Lester Park is a neighborhood in Duluth, Minnesota, often taken as Lakeside.  It is at the far northern reaches of Lakeside, and borders the Lester River.  The mouth of the Lester River is the most popular smelting area in Minnesota.

The annual Lester River Rendezvous festival takes place every September, drawing people from all over.   Sponsored by the Lakeside-Lester Park Business Association and Duluth Parks and Recreation Department, this event brings the neighborhood and greater community together.

The Lester River Rendezvous features the Voyageur Village, where members play out the day in the life of a voyageurs camp from the late 18th century in Northern Minnesota. Local residents dressg up as voyageurs in the fur trading era, demonstrating outdoor cooking techniques, as well as telling stories of their historic adventures.

There are also games by the Duluth Children's Museum and pony rides. Musicians perform either at the park stage, strolling the park, or at the entrance gates.

The University of Minnesota Duluth owns the complex which includes the Hatchery/Bunk-room Building, Boat House, Pump House, Supervisor's Cabin on the south side of Congdon Boulevard, and a Superintendant's House on the north side of Congdon Boulevard.

God's Light

"Men are instruments in the hand of God, employed by Him to accomplish His purposes of grace and mercy.  Each has his part to act; to each is granted a measure of light, adapted to the necessities of his time, and sufficient to enable him to perform the work which God has given him to do."  Excerpt from "The Great Controversy Ended...A Glimpse into Eternity"
