Zip Line 2 resizedWe’re not sure whether you’ve heard, but there’s a pretty big football game happening in Minneapolis this week. And we’re excited to be part of it. Lakes Gas is supplying propane to heat tented areas at the Bold North Zip Line, part of the “big game” festivities.

The tanks were set up by our Clear Lake and St. Michael branch offices, and the propane was provided by our Minneapolis branch office.

The Bold North Zip Line will run for 10 days prior to the game.
