Celebrating 4th of July means that we are in the middle of all the summer fun! And while this year our Independence Day may look different than in the past, we can still have fantastic festivities to remember. Read More
I LOVE when July 4th falls on a Saturday! Do you have a Independence Day Go-To Plan? Or do you like to switch things up each year? Since I didn’t grow up here, I like to check out different festivals each year.
We’ve collected several ideas for celebrating Independence Day as a family. If you know of an event — free or paid — that you’d like to see added, please drop us a line via our contact form. Thanks!

As our kids get older, we start to navigate the tricky balancing act of giving them room to exercise independence while also keeping them safe and properly monitored. While ultimately only a parent can decide how to do this, we have some guidance with curfew times. This information comes in particularly useful on certain holidays – like New Years Eve, Independence Day and Halloween.
- Is there a curfew for Minors in Minnesota? Yes. While the state has not set a specific time, most municipalities and counties have curfews. They tend to be similar throughout the state, but you’ll want to look at your own area, which we have listed below by county.
- What is the curfew for 16 and 17-year-olds in Minnesota? Again, you’ll want to check your own municipality, but older teens often have a later curfew, with midnight being the most frequent curfew time for 16 and 17 year old minors.
- What about park curfews? Note that if your kids are out in parks, the park may have a different closing time from the city curfew. We try to list those times in our park directory entries.
