Lake Minnetonka Spirit of the Lakes Festival! July 15-16!

Spirit of the Lakes 2016Mound will once again be celebrating The Spirit of the Lakes Festival this coming Friday, July 15th and Saturday, July 16th at the Surfside Park and Beach! The city of Mound is located on the west side of Lake Minnetonka and has been holding this popular celebration for over 100 years!

There is plenty to do down by the lake! Anything from arts and crafts to The Minnesota Wakesurfing Championship! There is also fair favorite food such as mini donuts, gryros, and of course corn dogs. For a full events and food list feel free to visit the 2016 Spirit of the Lakes Website!

Make sure to get your dance shoes on Friday night because the festival kicks off with DJ Greg Sletten followed by Uncle Chunk! There will also be kids arts and crafts such as face painting, crazy hairdos, and tattoos at this time, bingo, and of course the adult beverage bar will be open. If you get off work a little bit earlier come on by from 2-5 and do some wine tasting. Once the sun goes down the fire dancers will be out to amaze and awe the audience with their fiery tricks! Friday night finishes off with Old Voltage so you can dance until you can't dance anymore!

Saturday morning the kids will be getting out of bed to go down to the Grand Parade! The parade runs along Commerce and Bartlett Blvd. and will have plenty of goodies for adults and kids alike. The Lake Minnetonka Home Team will be with Remax Advantage Plus and giving out pens, can coolers, reusable grocery bags, chip clips, and candy! So be sure to wave and say hello! Once the parade is over there will be plenty to do down at the park and the Remax Advantage Plus crew will have a tent set up all day so if you didn't get the chance to say “hi” during the parade you an catch us there!

The festival will end with a bang as the fire dancers and fireworks will be out for a grand finale but the night won't be done there as The Rhino Band will keep the party going with some tunes! Everyone will be having plenty of fun!

Over the next two days the Mound Spirit of the Lakes Festival has plenty to offer for all ages and will not disappoint! The Lake Minnetonka Home Team has taken part in this festival for over 15 years now and will continue the tradition for years to come. We are looking forward to seeing plenty of friendly faces and having a wonderful time. See you by the lake!
