Where to Celebrate Fourth of July Around the Twin Cities

Let’s face it, like the past few years, Fourth of July is looking (and feeling) a little different this year. The traditional Red White and Boom firework celebration has once again been postponed due to construction at Father Hennepin Park and staff shortages (the previous two years saw cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic). Fear not, we’ve rounded up some alternative methods of celebration for the whole family to enjoy.
