Fireworks And Other Things To Do July 4th In Duluth And The Twin Ports
Everyone heads north to the Twin Ports area to find some peace from the big cities…..you know what I’m talking about. I always get emails asking what to do while in the area. There are quite a few, but the bigger ones I’ve got listed here.
If you are up in the area early, On Wed. July 3rd, take in a little concert at Glensheen’s Concerts by the Lake which begins at 7 pm and lasts about 2 hours. The concerts are free, there’s music and Glensheen’s seven acres of formal gardens, vegetable gardens, and rocky Lake Superior shoreline.
Also On July 3rd, there are some Sailboat Races which you can see along the Duluth Lake Walk. They start informally at 6 pm and go for about two hours.
Some people from Minneapolis mention the Rides from the Thomas Shows are in the DECC parking lot, and there are plenty of outdoor concerts going on in the area, either in the Canal or at the Bayfront, there’s always live music around the area
There’s Fourth Fest at the Bayfront beginning at 4 pm, with music.Then the fireworks get under way at 10:10 pm. Why not take a cruise aboard the Vista Fleet and see the lake up close and enjoy the fireworks later. This is a great way to see places you can’t drive or walk.
There’s also a Duluth Huskies Baseball game that night with fireworks to follow. You can catch (no pun intended) that game at 5:05 pm on July 4th.
There is also live music around the city on July 4th in the evening with plenty of time to enjoy the fireworks.
You can walk downtown and enjoy many of our great shops and vendors, as well as our Canal park and watch the Bridge and Ships pass through. Our Duluth Lake Walk stretches across the city and brings you to the Rose Garden in Lief Erickson Park.There are usually some musicians in the park, if not it’s some great quiet time there if you are tired from the treck.
You can enjoy a train ride from the Depot, or take in a show at the Duluth Playhouse. You can also escape up the North Shore and take scenic Hwy 61 and sit by the lake or have a picnic with your loved ones.
