Defeat Of Jesse James Days In Northfield
(Cue the old movie preview reel music.)
It's thrills, it's chills, it's live and it's fun for the whole family. The Defeat of Jesse James Days celebration is on now through Sunday in Northfield. Check out the bank raid re-enactments. Performances are Friday at 6 and 7PM; Saturday at 11AM and 1, 3 and 5PM; and Sunday at 11AM and 12:30PM.
Here's a word of caution from the Defeat of Jesse James Days website: "Please note that the James/Younger Gang does re-enact the raid with horses and pistols and the Towns People are also armed. They will be discharging blank rounds of ammunition during the raid re-enactments. Please take necessary precautions with children and pets."
Plus there's an antique tractor pull, car show, carnival, food and more.
You can look up other information on our website about the James-Younger Gang, and there will be guests talking about this event on AM Minnesota on Thursday morning at 9:30AM on KDHL 920, with video available later on our YouTube channel.
