Come to beautiful White Bear Lake to celebrate Manitou Days, a three-week summer festival showcasing some of the greatest things about this lakeside community. For 47 years this annual summer ritual has been a favorite of locals and visitors.
The 2014 Manitou Days theme is "Bears on Wheels", and Jim and Marilyn Muellner will be the 2014 Grand Marshals.
The fun kicks-off on Thursday, June 19 with Marketfest and ends on July 4 with a spectacular fireworks display to music over the lake. One of festival highlights is the Grande Parade, which travels through the scenic downtown and along Lake Avenue, ending at Memorial Beach where a local band will perform at the Beach Dance following the parade.
Build a sand castle. Enter a fishing contest. Watch a movie in the park. Dance under the stars. Hunt for the medallion. There is something for everyone!
