The day kicks off with a parade starting at 10am, followed by activities and a picnic in Minnesota Square Park at noon and wrapping it all off with fireworks at 10 pm at Nicollet county fairgrounds in St peter.

”It’s a privilege to be able to host it. We’re lucky to be in a position to have a great spot like Riverfront Park to shoot the fireworks off at. And it’s one of our favorite things to do every year,” said Eric Jones, Co-Director at Mayo Clinic Health System Event Center.
