Turtle Races! @ Downtown Longville
Jun 5 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Turtle Races! @ Downtown Longville | Longville | Minnesota | United States

Longville’s iconic Turtle Races have been enjoyed by children of all ages for the last 50 years. Back in the mid-60’s Russ Nyvall started the races after realizing that there was a need to entertain residents and those vacationing in the area during the summer.

Every Wednesday afternoon from June through late August, streams of cars descend on the little town of Longville on the shores of Girl Lake to race turtles.

Today, the turtle mobile rumbles into town at about noon each Wednesday. Promptly at 12:30 nearly 25 volunteers magically appear and unload the turtle mobile, close off main street, and transform the town into a mini-county fair.

Join us Each Wednesday, June 6 to August 22, 2018 (Exception: NO TURTLE RACES July 4th)!
Registration: 1:00 pm
Contests: 1:00 – 2:00 pm
Games: 1:00 – 3:00 pm
Resort Turtle Race: 2:00 pm
Turtle Races: 2:05 – 3:00 pm
