Each year, Canterbury Park ramps up activities for the Fourth of July. Things kick off on Tuesday, when in addition to racing there will be free pony rides for kids, face painting, and a petting zoo. A carnival will feature games and fair food. Rock Godz provide live music, and the evening will conclude with a large fireworks show. Festivities continue on Wednesday with a hot dog eating contest, a kids’ parade, and the freakin’ adorable corgi race.
