ALBERT LEA, Minnesota – History is coming alive in Albert Lea this weekend.

The 27th annual Big Island Rendezvous is underway.

It’s a chance to experience what life was like in the fur trade period.

Native American tipi tours, authentic cuisine, and early American crafts and artwork are just some of the attractions that draw people back year after year.

“I come out here every year because I just love American history and Native American, mountain man, my dog Colter is named after a mountain man, John Colter. And so I just love coming out here milling around and I think it’s a great thing for out community,” says event attendee, Peggy Bennett.

And it’s not too late to get in on the fun.

The Rendezvous continues Sunday; gates open at 9am at Bancroft Bay Park in Albert Lea.
