If you lived at the Wayzata MN condos of Meyer Place at Ferndale, you would enjoy being steps away from all the action in the heart of Wayzata. This includes the 4th of July celebrations happening in Wayzata.

First up is the Flying Pancake Breakfast. From 8 a.m. to 12 noon, come to Lake Street in downtown Wayzata for the annual Revolutionary “Flying Pancake” Breakfast at Depot Park. It is open to people of all ages and will include pancakes, sausage, coffee, cold drink and a free flag to commensurate the holiday. Pancakes will be tossed for you to catch and there are also performances by revolutionary soldiers to see. Mayor Ken Willcox will honor the veterans during a short program in which he will be the master of ceremonies. This event is priced $6 per person and free for US Veterans.

Next is the 58th annual Broadway Kiddie Parade. This will take place at 10 a. m. on the corner of Park Street and Broadway Avenue. The Wayzata Fire Department will kick off the event while driving the Grandmother of the Year in an old-fashioned fire truck. A parent or guardian must accompany children in order for them to participate. Free balloons, lemonade and popsicles available. No battery operated or motorized vehicles are allowed at the event.

The Mini Olympics for kids has returned in its 46th year. Sponsored by the Wayzata Fire Department, the Mini Olympics will be at the Wayzata West Middle School football field at 12:30 p.m. This is open for youth ages five to 12 and will include a softball throw, running races and the running broad jump. Events for children four and under include penny hunting and running races.

Finally, there is the Fourth of July Boat Parade. The Fourth of July Boat Parade will start at 2:30 p.m., the parade will start north of Spirit Island on the west side of Wayzata Bay and end at the Broadway docks. The boat parade is a competition in which participants will be judged in the categories of best overall, most patriotic, and most original. Winners will have their photos posted on the City of Wayzata’s website. If you would like to participate in the boat parade you can register here. The deadline is Thursday, June 27th by 3:30 p.m.

Celebrations such as these and other community activities are exactly why Wayzata is a great place to live, retire or vacation and why you should consider living at Meyer Place! Request more information about our Wayzata MN condos today by calling 952-294-2112
