February is a great month in Red Wing. If you enjoy music, Leo Kottke is playing the Sheldon Theatre on February 6th. If comedy is your thing then check out the latest rendition of Late Night Catechism on February 13th, also at the Sheldon. February is also when hundreds of bald eagles migrate into the Mississippi Valley. Beginning February 20th, visit Colville Park, right in Red Wing, and view these magnificent birds up close and personal.

It’s December in Red Wing and we just received a fresh foot of snow. There are numerous cross country ski trails as well as Welsh Ski Village nearby.
Also, an update on what’s happening in Red Wing on New Year’s Eve. Treasure Island has Kansas and Night Ranger performing. The Sheldon Theatre is hosting a Bluegrass New Year with Monroe Crossing, and Norton’s Restaurant is featuring the Wayne McFarland Band. It should be a great night in Red Wing.
