Fri, Jun 28th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Features

Whether it’s the sight of fireworks, the sound of the parade, or the smell of delicious food cooking, or all of the above, Harmony’s Fourth of July Celebration draws a crowd every year. The Fourth of July Celebration in Harmony, Minn. does not occur only on July 4. The Celebration begins Wednesday, July 3 and will last through Sunday, July 7, 2013 with many activities scheduled for the entire five day event.

Wednesday, July 3 kicks off the Celebration with the Beer Tent open from 5 pm until midnight. The Beer Tent will be located at the North Side of Selvig Park in Harmony and is sponsored by the Harmony Conservation Club. The Harmony Conservation Club will also be sponsoring Karaoke Joe in the Beer Tent on Wednesday evening from 8 pm until Midnight.

Wake up early and get to the Harmony Fire Hall on Thursday, July 4, for a pancake breakfast to get your Independence Day off to a great start, sponsored by the Harmony Conservation Club. Keith McIntosh of the Harmony Conservation Club states that they will be serving “pancakes, sausage, coffee, and milk,” which are favorites of many people. The pancake breakfast will be held from 7 am - 9:30 am

After a tasty, energizing breakfast hit the links at the Harmony Golf Course for the Best Shot 9 Hole Golf Tourney which will begin at 9 am. The tournament is open to the public so give those muddy golf clubs a cleaning and sign up!

For the third consecutive year Hammell Equipment will be sponsoring a State Sanctioned Kid’s Pedal Pull. Check in for the Pedal Pull will be at 9:30 am and the pull will begin at 10 am in the parking lot behind the First Southeast Bank. The trophies the kids will be pulling for will be donated by Minnowa Construction. In case of rain, the Pedal Pull will be held at the Harmony Community Center.

After the Pedal Pull “jump” over to the Toad Races at the Village Green in Harmony. Toads will not be provided so if your kids don’t have one yet they still have time to find a good one!

Selvig Park will be a hot spot on July 4 with many activities and events for children and adults. There will be smoked pork chops dinners available from 11 am - 1:30 pm, sponsored by the Harmony United Methodist Church, serving smoked pork chops, baked potato with topping, baked beans, roll, applesauce, and beverage. The cost of the smoked pork chop dinner will be $9 for adults and $6 for children under 12.
