For three days every February, crowds that are more than 10 times the population of tiny Walker, Minnesota, gather on Minnesota’s third largest lake, Leech Lake, for a festival named for one of the ugliest bottom-dwelling fish, the eelpout. In a state where it is common to embrace the quirky and find great fun in the most unlikely circumstances and weather conditions, this festival is pure Minnesota fun.
