The Minneapolis Aquatennial returns July 24 through the 27. 

The Aquatennial features a parade, fireworks and new this year Frey's Fry Throwdown where mayor Frey and a team of local foodies will judge the best fry-based dish from a group of eight local restaurants. 


For all you fireworks lovers this year's display will take place over the Mississippi River on Saturday, July 27. In celebration of this being the 80th year of the Aquatennial, the fireworks will be synced to an 80's-themed soundtrack.
