American Legion pushes plans for second smelt fry to May 28

The Elk River American Legion will host its second annual smelt fry 4-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 28. The event had been planned for May 14 but was pushed back due to the availability of smelt.

There will be fish available as an alternative to smelt.

Last year’s first-time event attracted more than 400 people, and the Legion hopes to serve twice that many this year, according to Mike Beyer, the outgoing commander of the American Legion.
