A Night Of Smiles, Inaugural SmileFest A Success!


A beautiful late summer evening was the backdrop to an amazing smile filled, family oriented, music playing kind of night for the first Smile Fest!

With delicious food, bounce houses, and face painting, the mood was light and had a feeling of nostalgia when neighbors came together to socialize and meet new friends. The dance floor with full of children of all ages dancing to the Grammy Award Winning Okee Dokee Brothers and Brainerd’s own Seth Doud. Blankets and lawn chairs filled the grounds at the Brainerd Industrial Center, formerly Potlatch, for a family event that we can only hope will continue.

A huge thank you to Smiles For Jake, CRMC, Brainerd Industrial Center, Old Dutch ,Kemps, Cub Foods, Prairie Bay, Hilmerson Rv, CTC , GLS Promotions, Silent Partner Productions, and Hubbard Radio, along with the all the volunteers, Police, Fire Department, and McGruff!
