Celebrate the Minnesota River at a themed cultural event at the river’s edge in New Ulm. The event will be held September 3-4 and features music, good food, refreshments, fishing, river rides, and games, as well as a run/walk and guided bicycle tour. A highlight on Saturday is the “Flotilla on the River Water Parade” with entries of all descriptions. Trophies are awarded to the most creative and inventive floats. Camping is available on site for a small fee.
