Who could have imagined a July 4 celebration (on the water) in Luverne?


Growing up in Luverne in the 1980s and 1990s, I experienced a very quiet Fourth of July holiday in my hometown.

Any holiday activities were always in other towns. Luverne was closed for the Fourth.

Independence Day is a summer, outdoor holiday.
