PostSubject: Arctic Cat Celebrates the Brand’s 50th Anniversary   Wed Apr 27, 2011 2:10 pm



Thief River Falls, Mn – Home of Arctic Cat


Arctic Cat will celebrate the brand’s 50th
Anniversary as thousands of loyal Arctic Cat enthusiasts converge upon Thief River Falls,
Mn on July 29th and 30th. The celebration will be open to the public and all events are free.

Arctic Cat’s 50th marks a major milestone which began in 1961 when Edgar Hetteen
founded Polar Manufacturing in Thief River Falls. There he began producing snowmobiles
that reflected his dreams. One year later he changed the company name to Arctic Cat, and
began a series of innovations that transformed hulking snow “machines” into small, playful
snowmobiles.

Arctic Cat has two days of non-stop activities planned with the central location sharing space
between the Pennington County Fairgrounds and the Ralph Engelstad Arenas. Highlights will
include factory tours on Friday and Saturday, the world’s largest Arctic Cat product display
called “Years of the Cat” which will be open to all Arctic Cat – related products regardless
of model or year, an Arctic Cat-only swap meet, ATV and UTV demo tracks, special 50th
Anniversary clothing and memorabilia will be sold, autograph sessions with Team Arctic
heroes, race truck displays and several events for kids, plus music, food and much more.

Hotels are already filling up quickly so make your reservation now. For a listing of local
lodging and camping opportunities in Thief River Falls, please log on to www.visittrf.com.
