Outdoors will take center stage when Willmar Lakes Area hosts Fishing Opener
WILLMAR—For those who think that walleye are the star of the show when the Willmar Lakes Area hosts the 2018 Governor’s Fishing Opener, try again. It’s really an opportunity to showcase all of the attractions the area offers, and let people know why this is a great place to visit or call home. Organizers are expecting 125 media guests during the four days of activities May 10-13, according to Beth Fischer, executive director of the Willmar Lakes Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
