Bemidji Day on the Hill

ST. PAUL, MINN. – Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, the vibrant red and black buffalo plaid and the first city on the Mississippi – all are hallmarks of the great northern town of Bemidji. Wednesday marked Bemidji Day on the Hill and Senator Tom Saxhaug was proud to spend the day talking with constituents.

“Bemidji Day on the Hill is always a fun day. I love that that people from Bemidji really come out in full force. People love this city and it’s great to see their pride and their colors at the Capitol,” said Sen. Saxhaug.

Bemidji is a progressive Northwoods city that’s well known for its logging industry, health care facility, college and its gorgeous scenery. Recreational opportunities also abound including 400 fishing lakes within a 25-mile radius, as well as a network of trails for bikers, hikers, skiers and snowmobiling enthusiasts at nearby State and National Forests.

“Bemidji is a true treasure of the Northwoods and its residents are all proud to represent this first city on the Mississippi. I’d like to thank the people who help put together Bemidji Day on the Hill for their passion and hard work,” said Sen. Saxhaug.
