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 46 years this annual summer ritual has been a favorite of locals and visitors.
This year's theme is "Good News Bears", and the 2013 Local publisher emeritus of the White Bear Press, Gene Johnson and his wife Kathy, will be this year's Grand Marshals.
The fun kicks-off on Thursday, June 13 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 local band Joe Cruz and the Scenic Roots featuring The Grimm’s will perform at the Beach Dance following the parade.
Build a sand castle. Enter a fishing contest. Eat the world's largest sundae. Watch a movie in the park. Dance under the stars. Hunt for the medallion. There is something for everyone!
