Winona, Minnesota riverfront panoramic canvas

10in H x 43in W, 1.5in thick, ready to hang
One-of-a-kind, panoramic photo of Winona, Minnesota
with Julius C. Wilkie steamboat

To my knowledge, this is the only panoramic of Winona, Minnesota‘s riverfront as viewed from Latsch Island. It features a number of prominent Winona landmarks nestled under the bluffs: The Basilica of St. Stanislaus Kostka, Sugar Loaf Bluff, J.R. Watkins building, The Kensington, Winona County Courthouse and the Interstate Bridge – all of which are reflected by a calm, mirror-smooth Mississippi River – agruably the best feature of Winona, Minnesota. Even more unique, the Julius C. Wilkie steamboat, razed in 2008, is centered in the middle of the image.

The canvas comes ready to hang with a protective dust cover on the back as well as pre-installed mounting hardware. It’s small enough to fit over a couch, yet big enough to create a beautiful & artistic focal point in your home or business. This panoramic canvas would be perfect for the person who loves the little river city of Winona, Minnesota.

Mid West Music Fest – Day 3

The sun was shining on the third and last day of Mid West Music Fest and everyone was out and about early with the Earth Day celebration at Levee Park. While the breeze still had a slight chill to it, you couldn’t help but enjoy the heat as the sun kissed everyone in attendance. Later in the evening, downtown Winona was packed with what seemed like twice as many people as previous nights, but I imagine the pub crawl at non-MWMF establishments had something to do with that. A new favorite band, The Fattenin’ Frogs, had Eds (no name) Bar hopping to their music and the amazing vocals of Amanda White. Overall, it was a perfect ending to possibly the best Mid West Music Fest yet.

List of musicians and the venue:

  1. Jake Ilika & The Heavy Set – Winona Levee Park
  2. The Zinghoppers – Winona Levee Park
  3. Savannah Smith – Broken World Records
  4. Swallows – Eds (no name) Bar
  5. Reina del Cid & the Cidizens – Broken World Records
  6. Eli Glor – Broken World Records
  7. Cannons North – Eds (no name) Bar

Keep an eye on Mid West Music Fest 2014 as it’s scheduled for April 24-26, 2014.

Mid West Music Fest 2013 – Day 2

Day two of the Mid West Music Fest provided nearly every weather element possible, but that didn’t stop many festival goers from hitting the streets and see some of their favorite musical acts. Things that stood out for me: Eds (no name) Bar had its second-annual block party and although the music was moved indoors, they were already at capacity at 7:30 for Caroline Smith & The Goodnight Sleeps. Later that night, Chastity Brown wowed the crowd with her soulful voice. The People Brothers Band got the crowd movin’ & shakin’ like a primer for Apollo Cobra at Jefferson’s Event Center, which was nearly at capacity by the end of the night.

For most, waking up to rain on a Saturday morning would normally mean rescheduling some outdoor activities that you may have had planned. When it’s your wedding day, it could cause some unwanted anxiety – even though it’s been said that rain on your wedding day is good luck, no one really wants it to rain on your wedding day.
