Minneapolis Aquatennial 2014: Beach Bash

The Minneapolis Aquatennial kicked off its 75th year of celebrating the City of Lakes with its famed milk carton-boat races, sandcastle building contests, and plenty of other fun activities around the city's shorelines and beyond. The 10-day festival brought out plenty of folks looking to catch some rays and soak their toes in the water; here are a few of the memorable scenes from the first weekend of the Aquatennial.
