Days Celebration Moose
Lake, MN Agate Days in Moose Lake, Minnesota is quite
a unique event in this quiet small community. Agates were formed millions of years ago when the pressure of the
glaciers during the ice age compressed the earth's minerals. Lake Superior glaciers left rare gems called agates. The best ones have a
great translucent reddish color and many lines running throughout the stone, there are also (another favorite) Lake Superior Eye Agate.
A Free Gem show is hosted at the local school
with many Gem vendors from numerous States showing off their pride gems which
feature Lake Superior Agates. In the afternoon the Moose Lake Chamber of
commerce hosts the annual Agate Days Stampede! "Now this you have to see!"
A dumptruck drops a load of rocks right down the Main street in downtown
Moose Lake, mixed within these rocks there are Agates and quarters for people to hunt for (truly fun treasure hunt).
The shotgun start lets everyone know when the STAMPEDE begins. Below
are some photos taken to give you an idea of this True "WHERE 2HAVEFUN IN MINNESOTA" event.
And there you have it! A great days event! Moose Lake, Minnesota is
the Agate capitol of the world. Stop by and check this one out! This event
is usually held on the 3rd Saturday in July.
