Another celebrity sighting in Detroit Lakes: Justin Bieber does some wakeboarding

Maybe the paparazzi will start renting places in Detroit Lakes.

Last weekend it was actor Josh Duhamiel who drew fans while hanging out at Zorbaz on the Lake.

On Friday it was Justin Bieber who created a stir by visiting town.

DL Online reports it was Big Detroit Lake where Bieber put his wakeboard to use – and gave fans something to squeal about just by being there.

Bieber is in the area because his Purpose World tour includes a show at the Fargodome Saturday night followed by one at Target Center in Minneapolis Sunday night.

Before wakeboarding, the pop sensation made a pitstop at the Lakeside Tavern but didn't stay long, the brewery told BringMeTheNews he was just using the bathroom.

The Forum reports that in Fargo Bieber is expected to meet with a 10-year-old fan from New Mexico whose visit was arranged by Make-a-Wish. Naisy has a life-threatening autoimmune disease, the Forum says, and her wish is to meet her favorite singer.
