"It's one of largest parades in Minnesota and every year it's a hit," Becker County Historical Society Executive Director Amy Degerstrom said.

"Their job was to promote the Detroit Lakes area and bring people here," Becker County Historical Society Executive Director Amy Degerstrom said.

"It was said to have been the largest aggregation of visitors that Detroit Lakes has ever entertained at one time," Degerstrom said.
"One of the funniest events was in the 1970s where they would literally hit a car with a bat," Degerstrom said. "A past participant said it was the most popular event that year."
It seems that one has to truly be there to really understand why some of the events over the years were fun, she added.

"Everything from Bach to banjo music," BCHS Executive Director Amy Degerstrom said.

Degerstrom said it's certainly an interactive program.
"One hundred and fifty years is a big deal," Degerstrom said of the anniversary. "Music was a big aspect of war - entertainment."
During the men's down time, waiting for orders, they would pass their time writing letters, keeping journals, playing games and listening to music.
"Music can't be displayed because it's interactive. This helps bring that piece of history alive," Degerstrom said.

Becker County Historical Society Executive Director Amy Degerstrom is leaving the museum July 10. Even though it was a tough decision because the museum just kicked off a capital campaign for a new building, her husband accepted a position in Grand Forks and they will be moving.

That's what Becker County Historical Society Executive Director Amy Degerstrom is hoping people will understand. Degerstrom is leaving the historical society after five years.
Degerstrom said that no matter the staff, Johnson and his associates will be helping move the project forward.
While it's a loss to the museum to have Degerstrom leaving, he said, she was the right person at the right time for the museum, and "this person will bring their special qualities to it, too," he said of the new person to be hired.
Degerstrom said that while it was a tough decision to leave, her husband's new job offers their family more stability and time with their young daughter, Zoey.
"After the loss of our son, we recognized even more clearly that there is nothing more important than time together, and this move will allow that for all of us," she said.
Having moved to Lake Park - where Amy serves on the city council and Sean serves on the school board - from Duluth, Degerstrom said the county as a whole has been welcoming and supportive, and for that, they are "extraordinarily grateful."
"I hope they (the community) will welcome the new person as graciously as they have welcomed me," she said.
Still needing to search for her own job in Grand Forks, Degerstrom is more than committed to her existing job until she leaves mid-summer. And even after that, she'll still be checking on how the museum is coming along.
She said that she is still looking forward to seeing the building project come to fruition and plans to be back to visit once it is up and running.
"You haven't seen the last of me," she said with a laugh.

"They talked about the fact that there were all these amazing natural resources around them, and they could capitalize on that," said Amy Degerstrom, executive director of the Becker County Historical Society.

"These were very high tech steamboats for that time; people were not used to seeing that type of thing around here," said Degerstrom, who says West worked with people around the Shoreham area to get them to build cabins and resorts.
"He was very good at finding people to finance his ideas and others to realize them," said Degerstrom.
"They started up the library, and really wanted to bring in some culture and other things for people to do other than visit the boarding house, aka the brothel," said Degerstrom.
"The cultural perception changes, and people started thinking about what their children wanted and they needed," said Degerstrom.
"It shifted from 'we're going to the cabin' to 'we're going to the beach,' so it not only brought more of a focus to the city of Detroit Lakes, but it also gave access to people who wouldn't have it otherwise," said Degerstrom, who says not everybody could afford a cabin, but everybody could go to the beach.
"People were looking for and were really wanting that precious family time," said Degerstrom, who says with that demand came another shift in what Detroit Lakes would provide.
Because families had become so diverse, so too did local businesses.
"You need places like Zorbaz where you can go and get a little wild, then places like Lakeside where you can go and get a burger and a beer, and places like Fireside where you can go and get a fancy meal," said Degerstrom.
"And I think we're really lucky that people are still wanting to invest in new things in our community because that's how it started out," said Degerstrom.
