Do you prefer your holiday celebrations to be a little more old-fashioned? Then load up the family and head on over to Historic Fort Snelling. The fort will celebrating America with a military approach. Throughout the day, families will be able to learn a little bit about history with theatrical presentations, patriotic speeches, and a military dress parade. Play old-fashioned games, listen to fife and drum music, and be sure to cover your ears for the cannon salutes.
Mon., July 4, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2011
