I would like to personally thank the Kraut Krew for their tremendous efforts in planning this event!
Thank you to the Henderson Chamber for continued support in the Kraut Stand.
Thank you to the many residents of Henderson for their help in the Kraut Stand. Without your help, we wouldn't be able to pull this off.
The Kraut Krew's mission is to provide the best small town festival in southern Minnesota and i think that with a little help from mother nature, we accomplished our goal!
Thanks to all that attended the festival. Hope you see you all next year!
FRANKS Kraut still everyone's favorite Kraut.
