Spirit Valley Days Promises Bigger And Better, Here’s Traffic, Parking, And Parade Instructions.
Spirit Valley is getting ready to show off their best side with a party to make it big. Spirit Valley Days is ready to roll with Miss West Duluth, a car show, things to do, places to eat, and people will also consume a few barley pops. (Beer!!)
The events are kicked off with the annual Spirit Valley Parade which starts at 6 pm on Thursday. There will be some closures, and those begin at 5:30pm. Look for some parking restrictions too.
