Fall Around Town - What to do in Algona!

As the seasons change, so do our plans to bring you an unparalleled shopping experience filled with excitement, connection and incredible savings. Here is a sneak peek into the upcoming Algona Area community events and Bloom sales that you won’t want to miss. These are some of our favorite ways to spend a day in Kossuth County during October and November. 


Band Day 
Come see, listen and enjoy 100+ floats, vehicles, and 15 school marching bands, on Saturday, September 30, 2023 for the annual Band Day parade and field competition. We are especially excited this year to celebrate the 75th anniversary of this popular Algona tradition! Special activities have been planned for this year’s celebration including a float contest, alumni band, food trucks, and fireworks!

Bloom loves Band Day and especially Kelsey! She played
saxophone and marched all through Junior High and High School. Her favorite part was (and still is) the field show. Her kids favorite part is the Doughnut-Mobile :)
