Pequot Lakes to Host MS TRAM

On July 27, MS TRAM will bring more than 1,000 bicyclists to Pequot Lakes.
The community and businesses are asked to welcome this group in the following ways:

  • Roll out the welcome mat and turn down the sheets - Fifty bicyclists are in need of a private home to stay for one night (Tuesday, July 27) and are willing to pay $20 per person to stay at a home. Host homes need to provide a bedroom and transportation to and from the Trailside Park or the Pequot Lakes Chamber office.
  • Bring your products and services to the people - Businesses are invited to bring products and services to the audience in Trailside Park. Yearly favorites of the ride participants include services such as chiropractic, massage, nails, hair, tattoo, self portraits and photography. Cost for a booth on Tuesday, July 27, from 2 to 8 p.m. is $75 for chamber members and $150 for non-chamber members.
  • Bring the people to you - Sponsor a shuttle stop at your business to ensure that MS TRAM riders will come to your business on July 27. Cost is $75 for chamber members and $150 for non-chamber members.
  • Put a smile on their face - There will be an entertainment stage in Trailside park. Businesses or private individuals are needed to sponsor entertainment. Entertainment that includes music and demonstrations from dance and karate groups are encouraged.

Anyone interested in helping with this event can contact Sue Galligan with the chamber at (218) 568-8911 or email.
