The Devils of North Lincoln County – Exhibit Opening

February 8 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Red Devils group formed in Taft and Devils Lake in 1933 to promote events like “The Redhead Roundup” and the “Devils Lake Regatta.” The group promoted events and entertained visitors with different shenanigans, including kidnapping redheads and throwing them in the ocean or lake, holding mock weddings, and other general tomfoolery. The local businessmen had a large part in the success of tourism here in North Lincoln County, and were key in the “20 Miracle Miles Campaign.” This Exhibit will showcase Red Devils photos, quotes from those who have experienced them, and artifacts, including a four-foot-tall parade float devil head, several Red Devil costumes, and more! This temporary exhibit will open on Saturday, February 8th and run for all of 2020.
