There’s another Minnesota state park celebrating 100 years this year – Whitewater State Park in Winona County. Whitewater holds a special place in my heart as it was the destination for our church youth group’s weekend trip each winter. I loved it there!
Celebration events are planned throughout the summer, including one happening this weekend. Check the calendar for a full list of events including historical hikes, canoe paddles, live music, and much more. Some highlights include:
- Whitewater Centennial Event – Boy Scout Camporee Parade and Campfire Ceremony: May 11th from 6 – 8 pm
