Where Beauty & Nature intersect

Visit Beautiful Park Rapids, Minnesota!

Then & Now Photo Contest

The Park Rapids Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism turns 100 this year and we’re celebrating all summer long. Since 1918, the Chamber has worked with members to bring business and tourism to our area so we’re having a picture contest to look back at 100 Years of Summer. Dust off those photo albums, look through your scrapbooks! One of your pictures could be worth $250.

The Chamber is holding 2 different photo contests; Fun in the Sun and Then & Now.   Then & Now photos will be put in a drawing for a gift basket filled with goodies from member businesses. Any photos may be used on social media or be chosen to be in the 2019 Discovery Guide. The submission deadline for both contests is August 10th.
