Screaming at Lake Superior

Last year, Duluthians gathered behind Leif Erickson Park to scream at Lake Superior. The April Fools’ Day screaming session was initiated by Ryan Glenn. “I originally posted the event […] to be sort of a joke, so in case it flopped it was on April 1,” they said.

But when the idea took off, they followed through. Glenn shared that “the goal of this was to offer a free and inclusive space for anyone to vent their frustrations. Be it with work, relationships, life, or anything. Access to mental health support is incredibly hard to find and within the increasingly demanding way of modern life it has become harder to connect to others in a community sense. The hope was to bring together as many fellow-minded people to commiserate and uplift. I believe that together we accomplished that.”

A year later, there’s still plenty to yell about. So if you woke up this morning feeling defeated, or like someone pissed in your corn flakes, find a quiet, serene spot and give lake screaming a try.
