This is the first installment in "Discover Minnesota"! Look for more installments to follow!
Check out beautiful downtown Hastings this Saturday Night! July 28th 2007!
Located just an hour South of North Branch Minnesota, you will find the quaint old river town of Hastings!
Hastings Minnesota! Known for the only Spiral Bridge over the Mississippi River!
This is the second year of the "Classic Car Drive in!" This is a fun free event! I grew up in Hastings Minnesota, and my parents still live there, we were visiting them a couple weeks ago, and they brought up the car show! We went to this FREE event and had a BLAST! Located in the historic downtown district bordering the Missippi River, with the sounds of classic Rock playing from every corner, you feel like you are back in the 50's and 60's!
Historic 2nd Street.
Old fashioned soda shops, ice cream parlors, classic rock music, and the sounds of hot rods as they make their way out of town and across the Mississippi River are all the back drop of this Rootin Tootin good time! If you can not make it this Saturday, Do not fret! This event happens every other Saturday Night through the summer!
If you want, make a weekend out of it! With Hastings being at the confluence of the St Croix and Mississippi Rivers, bring the boat and enjoy everything the river has to offer! Another Day on the river!
Or, sample and tour some of the colorful History in the area. Take a drive around town and look at the interesting archetecture of the differnt old homes, or take a tour of the Leduc Mansion! No stop in hastings would be complete with out stopping at the breath taking Vermillion Falls!
