Head west for Wrong Days fun

At 57 years straight - or is it crooked? - the Wrong Days in Wright celebration is one of the longest running community events in the area. The small town celebration in western Carlton County didn't even pause during the first year of the pandemic, and it's still going strong.

Longtime Wrong Days volunteer Jennie Hanson said it's a special time for the local community, population 136.

"It's the one time every year that people get together," she said. "Past and present residents come from miles around, there are class reunions. It's just a wonderful community gathering."
