White Bear Lake Manitou Days is a three-week summer festival showcasing some of the greatest things about this lakeside community. For 55 years this annual summer ritual has been a favorite of locals and visitors.
The fun kicks-off on Thursday, June 16 at Marketfest, and ends on the fourth of July with a spectacular fireworks display to music over the lake. One of the festival highlights is the Grande Parade, which travels through the scenic downtown and along Lake Avenue, ending at Memorial Beach, where local band Lamont Cranston will perform at the Beach Dance following the parade. This year's theme is "Lake Bears", celebrating 100 years of Water Skiing in White Bear Lake.
With more than 60 events, Manitou Days offers something for everyone! Attend a parade. Build a sand castle. Shop Downtown White Bear Lake. Do yoga on the beach. Dance under the stars. Watch fireworks on the lake. There is something for everyone!
