Hard Work and Fun in Motley
Monday, August 14, 2017
Motley is a town of just over 600 people which lies along the banks of the Crow Wing River. The city falls primarily in Cass County but outlying parts are in Morrison and Todd counties. Summer is full of fun in Motley with June Fest held each year in the middle of June. Motley Sings is part of the Statewide Amateur Vocal Competition. Other events include a Wing Cook Off, karaoke, pig races, kids games, street dance and of course the quintessential Minnesota summer festival activity- a parade! The night ends with a fun fireworks display!
Motley is also home to two major fresh seafood providers in the United States: Trident Seafood Corporation and Morey’s Seafood International LLC. Trident and Morey's both partner with small locally owned fishing companies to deliver the freshest seafood to plants in Motley to be packaged and later distributed. Motley prides itself on the availability of jobs but also plenty of space and time for leisure. The city's numerous parks include a dog park, playgrounds, a Veteran’s memorial area and a skate park.
