Fireworks and Parades

For those readers who live in the Twin Cities area, this coming weekend is Golden Valley Days. We discovered the celebration right after we moved here two years ago. It's kind of a nice, small-town festival in the midst of the city sprawl.

Friday night they have a small, but fun fireworks display following the battle of the bands. The nice thing is that this time of year, dusk is a little earlier than it is in July so you don't have to wait as long for them to begin.

They also have a nice parade on Saturday morning. It's a lot of local businesses and organizations--again that small-town feel--and a lot of them throw out candy and other things. And the kids love that, of course. They've got other things going on over the weekend--but those two events are highlights for the kids.

Let me know of other events occurring this summer.
