4th of July

Posted by

Happy 4th of July!  I can't believe it is already the 4th of July next week!  Where did June go?  So do you already have big plans for the 4th?  If not, here's what is happening in Excelsior on the 4th!

Start your 4th of July off with a bang by participating in the 41st annual Excelsior Firecracker Run!

Enjoy challenging, scenic terrain that includes stunning views of historic downtown Excelsior and Lake Minnetonka as you navigate the 1 Mile, 5K or 10K route. With rest stops, live music and plenty of enthusiastic volunteers along the way, runners can expect a fun-filled Fourth of July morning.

The Firecracker Run kicks-off a full day of festivities in downtown Excelsior that includes a kid's parade, sand sculpture contest, Lucas Oil Air Show and, of course, fireworks.

Last year, over 2,300 runners participated in the Firecracker Run, which is organized by Minnetonka Community Education and Excelsior Chamber of Commerce.

Decorate your children's bikes, scooters or wagons with patriotic pride and come walk in the parade to watch their bright smiles.

The Kids Parade will begin at Gary's Automotive Repair on Water St at 11:00am. The parade runs down Water St, turns onto Lake St, and ends at the Excelsior Commons. There will be popsicles, music and a petting zoo at the finish line!

Have you spent hours out on the beach letting your imagination soar with sand? Then you should participate in our fun sand sculpture contest! Come to the small Excelsior Beach a little before 9:00am and the Noon Rotary will get you set up with everything you need!

And of course, fireworks at dusk over Lake Minnetonka!
