For the first time in the history of the program we're State Bound!

The Park Rapids Girls Volleyball team earned the title of Section Champs after knocking off Roseau.  The Panthers lost to Roseau last year to have their dreams of state crushed, but got their revenge this year!  Sets were 25-16, 25-13, 25-13.

In the first round of the Class AA State Tournament the Panthers took on #3 seed Marshall who has appeared in State Tournaments 28 times and has 16 State Titles under their belt.  The Panthers lost 3-1 but put up a great battle by winning the 3rd set.  Marshall got a little uneasy realizing that the Panthers meant business.

The Panthers then moved into the consolation bracket Friday and took on Belle Plaine.  The Panthers again lost 3-1, but rallied back in the 2nd set to let Belle Plaine know that they meant business. Sets:  17-25, 25-23, 14-25 and 23-25. 

A large contingency of fans and the band headed to the Excel Energy center.  School was dismissed early Thursday and called off on Friday to allow Panther Fans to support their team.

Evergreen Fun Park Escape Rooms

On Thursday, August 24th the KK Radio Network went out to Evergreen Fun Park to try and escape one of there Escape Rooms. The event was placed as a way to show the community how fun the new Escape Rooms are in Park Rapids. The room that was used was based on one of the old bunkers found underground in New York. The bunker itself was used by Franklin Roosevelt during World War 2. Trying to escape took almost 40 minutes and there were many steps that had to be taken in order to try and escape. Another room that was available was based on an Old West jail that had you as the outlaw. For those looking for a great time and exciting action, look no further than Evergreen Fun Park!

Fun at the Firefly Event Barn

Sunday August 20th, the Firefly Event Barn partnered with a Beer-Bourbon-Bacon Fest organization.  The weather was perfect, the craft beers and distilled beverages  flowed freely and the crowd enjoyed awesome music by Steel River Band.  It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon with people and staff for the KK Radio Network, and relax on the patio of the Taproom or tear up the grass dancing to the band.  Owners for the Firefly Event Barn hope to build on the event themselves next year and make it bigger and better.  This summer has found the owers trying new things to expand the fun that take place on the ground of this quaint an beautiful facility.  Besides holding 25 wedding this season, a Taproom was openig this summer featuring 12 craft beers on tap, signature drinks and some light meals.  Thursday nights it's OPen Mic night, Friday's bring your date for date night and Sundays relax and chill before the work week begins.  The Taproom is closed most Saturdays due to weddings.  Check them out on Facebook for all the fun and different things they keep trying with many other fun events coming next year. 

Radio Station staff and friends


Moondance Jam Number 26 played to all demographics this summer!  The weather was great with the exception of one good storm that rolled through on Friday night, but the hardworking crew got things back on track with not one act being cancelled.  Another epic moment thou was made at Moondance when Black Stone Cherry did a repeat of the Moondance Sammy Haager performance on the regional stage so that all acts were able to be seen by jammers.  The Saloon was packed and Black Stone Cherry rocked it. Moondance is evolving like all festivals need too.  Built strictly on Classic Rock 26 years ago, the slow move to include younger bands has been taking place for the past few years.  The good old classic rockers of Vince Neil of Motley Crew, Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, Great White, Peter Frampton and Steve Miller band put on great shows.  Gracing the stage for the first time was Melissa Etheridge.  WOW! A talented, great musician and one heck of a guitar player.  Halestorm was back again and didn't disappoint with their high energy.   Lzzy pulled off a beautiful piano set where she sang the day lights out of "The Rose" and other beautiful songs.  Her brother tore up the drum set.  Excitement everywhere.   Then the newer, younger bands performed including Pretty Reckless, LIVE, Better than Ezra.  The dark horse of the week....Dorothy!  Not only is she a amazing singer, performer and everyone fell in love with her.  Backstage crew was ranting on how sweet, kind and easy she was to work with.  Kathy Bieloh announced from the stage that she has added 4 new partners and see great things to come for Moondance.  As the partners best said, "Moondance is not broken, it just hasn't reached it's full potential yet."  Moondance 27th will be bringing some great new changes and bigger bands.  Stay tuned!


It was another great year of fun at Moondance Jammin Country. Great artists crossed the stage including Thomas Rhett making his third appearance. Old Dominion put on an amazing show as their career is finally kicking into high gear with hit after hit. Dan and Shay put on an amazing show and were so much fun. Danielle Bradberry wowed the youngin's. Back visiting again with his low smooth true country tone was William Micheal Morgan. We heard from up and coming artists like Drew Baldridge, Parmalee plus more. Weather wise it was chilly...but the fun never stopped.  Kathy Bieloh the owner and operator of both Moondance Jam and Moondance Jammin Country announced from the stage Saturday night that she has 4 new partners who will be joining her.  The partners bring financial stability, an abundance of set skills that will only enhance Moondance more.  Expect bigger things in the future.  As the partners have been quoted saying;  "Moondance isn't broke, it just hasn't reached it's full potential."  Excited for 2018!!!

The raffle side of the ticket has a grand prize of a Ford Pickup! Temps are expected to be in the mid 30's. Should be a great day!


















The Heartland 106 Race was a huge success and ran 2 days on Fishhook Lake located north of Park Rapids.

Even thou old man winter was no where to be seen, several weekends ago cold weather secured the opportunity for the Heartland 106 Race to take place.  Heartland 106 is one of 8 races in the USXC Circuit and the last two years with the lack of snow have proved to make things challenging.  This race originally scheduled for Jan 16-17th was forced to be rescheduled to end of January with the hopes that we would get cold to make ice or better yet a pile of snow to make it a Cross-Country race.  

Well, the cold came and gave us plenty of ice, but no snow was to be seen.  The race was forced to be held on Fishhook Lake in Park Rapids for the 2nd year.  It was a beautiful weekend with temperatures in upper 30's and plenty of sunshine.  Racers and spectators alike enjoy the weekend.  Congrats to all the winners and local young racers Ean Voigt and Brandon Wolter who had a great weekend of racing.  Voigt ended up winning several classes.


Just announced this week, the I-500 from Winnepeg to Willmar has also been cancelled due to the lack of snow.

Here is actually video a gentleman caught of the Tornado that spawned between Bena and Hill City on Thursday Aug. 29th. It was in open area and from what we have hear, no structures or serious damage resulted from it. Click on title heading above to bring up amazing video.



Severe weather rolled through Northern Minnesota Thursday late afternoon.  A tornado warning for area's around Northern Cass County all the way to Aitkin County went into affect about 5:30pm and the storm continued to trek across the state delayng the Nevis vs Floodwood Football game in Floodwood.  Lightening was dancing around and players were moved inside the school for safety until the storm passed.  The game that was scheduled to begin at 7:00pm and finally was able to resume just before 9pm.  The tornado was first spotted near Bena and treked towards the Hill City area before spotters reported that it had disapated. This great photo was taken by  Shannon Northbird.   Nevis lost to Floodwood 27-20 in their first regular season game of the season. We have heard no reports of serious damage as the tornado spent most of it's time on the ground in open area's.
