Park Rapids has some fantastic weather coming this week. 70's by Saturday and Sunday! It's time to get lawn chairs out, sweep off the deck, fire up the grill and spend some time in the great outdoors. That's why we all live here right? For the beautiful change of seasons. I for one, am ready for spring!
