A crowd-pleasing act from the past few years is one of the performers featured this weekend at the Old Wadena Music Festival just north of Staples.


The Clockwork Clown, a mime show and fire-eating act with a healthy dose of comedy, is back once again, joining the muzzle loaders and wood carvers at the 19th annual rendezvous. The Clockwork Clown fire-eater and mime shows will be on the grounds twice a day both Saturday and Sunday.
