First off, you can find something to do this Saturday, June 30 as the Blooming Prairie Youth Club is staging their Barbecue Fest at the Servicemen's Club from 3-7PM. On Sunday you can learn about Blooming Prairie history. Meet downtown between 2-4PM. There will be mini tours about every half hour starting at 2:30PM. Wear your button or a donation is the only charge. Many of the businesses will have old photos of their buildings and bits of history. There will be live music as well.

Thirdly, things start up on Tuesday, July 3 when the Antique Tractor Show opens at 9AM at the High School. There will be a Teen Dance and Street Dance Tuesday night.

When it comes to the 4th it's important that you get to Blooming Prairie early. If you've been there before, you know that the earlier you arrive the closer you can park to the action.

And finally the great parade starts at 2:30Pm with more entertainment downtown after the parade. Mischief and Mayhem will be performing in the park starting at 5:30PM. It'll be one of the final chances for you to enjoy them as they're on their way to Vegas.

Most importantly, have fun!
