The real story about Eelpout festival

**Use headphones for this one, Ken was a soft talker** In 1978 Kenneth Virgil Bresley moved to the small town of Walker, MN and opened up a small bait and tackle shop. Pretty soon, he and a partner had a hair-brained idea for bringing people to the community in the dead of winter. Nobody else was doing it, and it was just crazy enough that it might work. The international Eelpout Festival is still going strong today, responsible for increasing the population of Walker from 2,000 to 10,000 for 3-4 days. This is how the festival was started and some stories about Ken's participation throughout the years.
