While Minneapolis sets fireworks off by the river, St. Paul offers a parade plus park and parking lot parties this Fourth of July. Things kick off at 11 a.m. with a parade featuring color guards, marching bands, floats, politicians, and more making their way down Como Avenue to Langford Park via Knapp Avenue. Following that, in the park you’ll find picnicking, music, lawn games like horseshoes and corn hole, sporting tournaments, and plenty of kids’ activities. Should you get hungry, food trucks will be stopping by, and after the party ends at Langford around 4 p.m., Sunrise Banks’ parking lot (corner of Como Avenue and Doswell Avenue) will have live music from the Rockin’ Hollywoods and beer from Rush River Brewing Company.
