Pequot residents may see extra noise July 3-4

I would like to take this opportunity to invite Pequot Lakes area residents to our exciting annual Stars & Stripes Days, July 3-4, in Trailside Park within downtown Pequot Lakes. We have the opportunity this year as part of this community celebration to provide entertainment on the south end of Trailside Park from 6 p.m. to midnight.

In addition, Stars & Stripes Days will feature other family friendly activities, including bed races, a pie-eating contest, pig races, fireworks, parade, and so much more. You can enjoy tasty treats from a variety of food vendors as well as a July 3 beer garden. During this event, we may experience increased noise levels in the immediate downtown area. We apologize for any short-lived inconvenience this may cause you and appreciate your understanding in supporting this annual event. Our annual festival provides an economic boost to our community as well as a fun opportunity for our community members and visitors to celebrate our nation.

If you would like any additional information about this event, please contact me at the Pequot Lakes Welcome Center, by phone at 218-568-8911, or by email to

I hope you enjoy our celebration and participate in what should be a most enjoyable and exciting event for Pequot Lakes.
