I am sure there are other events happening.  The Landing in Shakopee has been having some events so if you are looking for something to do, you could check their website.  https://www.threeriversparks.org/location/landing.
Sadly, Fabulous Fern's, on Sibley Street, has gone out of business.  On the other hand 1857 Waldmann's Brewery has opened and the building was built in 1857.  They have craft brews made on site and a small menu of German foods.  The owner loved it that we came in hoop skirts! The Ladig's will be playing there once a month.
Hope you are all having a GRAND summer!   Patti Low, corresponding secretary, HRS
