SIREN-With the ‘Safer at Home’ order now lifted and our doors opening, finding ways to enjoy a healthy lifestyle again is key to lifting our spirits while supporting our friends and families in business in the Siren area.

To this end, Siren is launching a campaign called ‘Siren Open Air Thursday.’ Tourists, residents, and our lake cabin owners are invited to partake in Siren’s great outdoors as businesses and organizations throughout the community host fun activities. These ‘open air’ activities invite all “to get outside, stay safe, and be well” in our beautiful north woods.


“We hope you and your families are healthy and well. Given the weight this pandemic has had on each of us as individuals and the economic toll on our businesses these past few months, we would like to invite you to take part in a new Siren area promotion this summer,” says Karen Laqua Anderson, Syren General Store owner and the originator of this idea. “Our great outdoors are the perfect setting for venturing out for some family fun.”

Each Thursday, across the Siren community, individual business promotions, tailored with their own special touches, will be held. These may include...

RETAIL SHOPS – Outdoor displays and/or demonstrations, e.g. ‘sidewalk sale’ type ways to shop.

DINING – Al fresco dining experiences with outdoor patio/deck/tent seating and special menu items and drink specials, or order take-out for a ‘picnic to go.’

ARTS & CRAFTS – Hand-crafted art sales/classes and family fun projects/workshops held outdoors.

LODGING – Overnight package promotions highlighting outdoor themes, e.g. golf, recreation, nature, etc.

In addition to the individual business promotions, an Open Air Market is being considered each Thursday at Crooked Lake Park. We are seeking interested vendors. Siren’s Music in the Park concert series completes ‘Siren Open Air Thursday’ (July/August only for 2020).


We invite all Siren area businesses to join this promotion, partnering with each other, while designing your own ‘open air’ activity. If you would like more information, have questions, and/or would like to sign up – please contact:
