MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The four best days of summer? That’s the new plan announced Friday for the Aquatennial.
Big changes have been made to the Minneapolis festival. Instead of 10 days, it will now run for four, and some of the Aquatennial’s most popular beach events have been cut.
In a way, the weather fit the mood on Lake Calhoun Friday when news broke that its banks won’t host a Minneapolis favorite.
In the London house, it was especially hard for some of last year’s sandcastle winners to hear the competition won’t be back.
“It’s a big disappointment,” Annique London said. “We had a ton of fun, learned a lot about building sandcastles and ended up taking third place in our category.”
