Event Independence Day celebrations

The Current Summer Guide graphic.



This event is featured in The Current Summer Guide, highlighting both musical and non-musical things to do this summer in the Twin Cities and beyond.

Why not try something different for your 4th of July tradition? For example: the Return of the '90s Throwback River Cruise, launching from Harriet Island. Ray Seville and the Original 5 are hosting this night cruise, set to a sound track of '90s hip hop, R&B, Chicago house, and dancehall music. Wear your best '90s getup. Or, for a more family-friendly option, venture over to CHS Field to watch the St. Paul Saints take on the Storm Chasers. Fireworks will take place for people that came for the game. For those wanting to get the party started early, head to the WAP Drag Brunch: Summer Edition, hosted by Flip Phone at Crave. Red White and Boom, the traditional Minneapolis riverfront holiday celebration, is on hiatus again this year due to COVID safety and uncertainty; instead, the Minneapolis Parks are planning a series of smaller celebrations at parks across the city.
