We will string a 1,200 foot rope across Rainy River and pull!
Why do we do this? Because we can!
This is a unique opportunity for people from all over to come to International Falls and Fort Frances to participate in a friendly game of tug of war across international waters. Enjoy the beautiful scenery Rainy Lake has to offer two countries - Canada and the United States!
