Independence Day weekend offers a respite for folks who have missed entertainment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At least for those who feel comfortable going out and about.
Celebrations that include fireworks displays are planned for Aberdeen as well as Mina and Richmond lakes.
Mina is planning an especially big weekend with its Freedom Festival that will feature skydivers, P-51 Mustang flyovers and a talk by one of South Dakota’s most decorated veterans. All of that is set for Friday beginning at 7:45 p.m. It’s been dubbed the Patriotic Spectacular, and Wakeside Bar & Grill, 103 S. Sunset Drive, will serve as the primary host. All of the Friday events are free.
