Let's Visit Remer: Attracting Young People to Remer

Scott and Kara's Rusty Bucket in downtown Remer, MN

Scott and Kara Kesti left life in the big city and opened a store on mainstreet in rural Remer, MN with a population of less than 400. They've made it their mission to be active in their small community, attract young people to the area, and spice things up a bit.  Integral in initiating the annual Bigfoot Music Festival, they continue brainstorming new and creative ways of luring folks to stop off  and do business in Remer. 

In this segment of  Let's Visit, the Kestis discuss what they love about  Remer, MN!
