Beginning with a block party, ending with a fireworks display and mixing lots of fun and entertainment in between is what the Minneapolis Aquatennial Festival is all about.
The official civic celebration for the city of Minneapolis brings members of one of Minnesota's most cherished communities together for good times during the heart of summer.
Residents of Minneapolis are reminded why they bought homes for sale in the city when hanging out with friends, family and neighbors on the city's streets and along the water. Many family-friendly activities take place each year during the Aquatennial, including a sand castle competition and boat races in the Calhoun Isles neighborhood, and a tennis tournament and music concerts in downtown Minneapolis.
For more than seven decades, Minneapolis homeowners and area residents have gathered to enjoy each other's company and celebrate one of the most special cities in the state. Numerous residents love coming back year after year to commemorate the city in style.
Homebuyers who want to take part in this event and others like it may want to direct their home search to Minneapolis.
