Growing up 4th of July was always a pretty big deal with our family. Every year we would have an unofficial family reunion at a local lake/park. That was after we attended the largest & oldest 4th of July festival in MN (Delano, MN’s ). A few years ago I when I found out I was expecting baby #1 on the 4th of July, I was pretty excited to add a little more excitement to the day (she ended up coming a few days early.)
I thought of doing this post a few months ago, and then it got unfortunately thrown to the back burner… 🙁 Then I got messages, emails, texts from my readers wanting to know what to do and where to do it this holiday weekend for the 4th of July… So I delivered..
Here it is.. Know an event that isn’t on the list? Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or write it in the comments.
