Summer And Holidays Pack June With Fun

With summer upon us there’s plenty of reason for cheer, and yet June insists on giving us more reasons for merriment with several holidays.

June 17- Father’s Day
Today is the day to celebrate your father or a father-figure in your life. Honor the one who took his role as “Dad” and lived it to the fullest. The one who played with you, spent time with you, and was there for you in the difficult times. Do something special today for the father in your life.

June 20- First Day of Summer
Yeah! It’s finally here! It’s time for outdoor music festivals and great summer fairs. Some of our favorite summer activities include: eating watermelon and grilled corn on the cob, going to the Minnesota State Fair and just enjoying the warm weather with some friends.

June 28- Paul Bunyan Day
The legend of Paul Bunyan dates back to the 1800’s. This legend is believed to originate from French Canadians during the Papineau rebellion of 1837. There are many tales of Paul Bunyan and many have been incorporated into children’s books; including stories of how Paul scooped out the Great Lakes to get water for his big blue ox named Babe. They also say the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota were formed from Paul and Babe’s foot prints when they were wandering through a blinding blizzard.
