MSUM to host Fourth of July events

With the Fourth of July less than a week away, the area is teeming with good old Americana.

Look no further than Minnesota State University Moorhead’s 38th annual Fourth of July celebration for your share of hotdogs, parades and fireworks.

Early-morning enthusiasts can begin celebrating with a 10K run and Kids’ Firecracker Trot at 8 a.m. Sunday at the MSUM Nemzek Field North Gate.

Evening events kick off at 6:30 p.m. at Nemzek Stadium, and the Patriotic Parade begins at 7 p.m. at 14th Street and Ninth Avenue South.

To fill your parade fix, the Decorated Bike Parade for Kids follows at 7:45 p.m. at the stadium.

The stadium and Nemzek Hall will feature concessions, inflatable games and music from the Lake Agassiz Concert Band at

7:30 p.m. and the Front Fenders at 8:30 p.m.

As Fourth of July celebrations usually do, the event ends with a fireworks display by RES Specialty Pyrotechnics at 10:30 p.m.
