Minnesota’s oldest and biggest fireworks show

This year we decided to attend the July 4th fireworks at Delano, Minnesota. Delano’s fireworks show is “oldest and biggest in Minnesota” , going strong since 1857.

Delano is also home to The Peppermint Twist, a iconic drive in restaurant that serves awesome milk shakes. You have to try their original peppermint milk shake. Good food , shakes and quick service, go visit them.
