Prairie Days is a well-attended summertime event. In 2012, the celebration took place the third weekend in July, and was planned by a volunteer committee.
All Prairie Days activities took place at Lester Prairie City Park (near the public pool). The first night, attendees enjoyed a band, bingo games, and plenty of food.
The next morning featured a Prairie Arts Council fun run/walk and a short children’s run, followed by a beanbag tournament, kiddie parade, and grande parade.
After the parade, coronation took place at Lester Prairie City Park. Hannah Leverich, Kathryn DeBruyckere, and Ashley Maesse were crowned as 2012-13 royalty.
Fireworks were shot off at dusk.
Sunday morning, a church service took place under the tent. Other events during Prairie Days weekend included softball games and a car/bike/tractor show.
