(Wabasha, MN)  —  This weekend is the 30th annual Grumpy Old Men Festival in Wabasha in Southeastern Minnesota.  The town is a favorite for eagle-watching on the shores of the Mississippi River.  But, this weekend Wabasha will be about the ice fishing tournament, the Grumpy Plunge, hotdish lunch, bingo, and much more.  The festival is inspired by the movie Grumpy Old Men starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.  They feud over a love interest played by Anne-Margaret… with the movie set in Wabasha… with ice fishing… and beer… and lots of laughs.   The festival runs today and Saturday.
