This weekend marks 50th anniversary of Moose Lake Agate Days

DULUTH, MN – If you’re from Minnesota then you’re most likely familiar with agates.

In fact, the rocks are so beloved here in the Northland, there’s even a festival all about them.

This weekend marks the 50th Anniversary of Moose Lake Agate Days.

The Gem and Mineral Show is happening at the Riverside Arena in Moose Lake.

You can experience the madness of the Agate Stampede which takes place at 3 p.m. Saturday.

A truck literally dumps agates into the roadway, and people flock to pick ones that catch their eye.
