Governor Mark Dayton will be making an appearance in Madelia.
He will attend a banquet Friday night followed by the pheasant hunting opener on Saturday.
Madelia's Mayor says his city is the perfect attraction for the governor.
Grote says, "Madelia is the pheasant capital according to the DNR from the research station and people in Madelia and southern Minnesota love to go hunting, they love to shoot birds."
Tickets for the governor's banquet are still available to the public.
