The 4th of July in Minot ND 2022

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

The list of events on the 4th of July in Minot ND is short

BUT

THE QUALITY OF THE EVENTS ARE EVCELLENT!

Celebrate Independence Day at Roosevelt Park!

This is an old fashion celebration and one of my personal favorites. I do not know the exact plan but I assure you that The Minot City Band will be there playing patriotic songs, there will be speaches by the commanders from the Minot Airforce Base (as well as some blowhard political folks like or Mayor), there will be food trucks and plenty of yard games. This is the best event for small children as there are no fireworks allowed that would scare them.

There will be plenty of noise and excitement however at the Nodak Speedway on the 4th of July and after the races (usually sometime between 11:00PM and Midnight) the sky will light up with fireworks thanks to The Minot Fireworks 

Group. This is a group of citizens that feel it would just plain old be WRONG if Minot did not celebrate the 4th the way it is meant to be celebrated. This is a dedicated group who for the last few years have paid for this celebration out of their own pockets! Jim Grot, the president of the group is hoping a few good men/women/families will dig deep in their pockets and help out. For a donation of $100.00 or more Jim will see what he can do to get you right down on ground level to watch the fun as opposed to sitting up in the nose billed section of the grandstands. So how about it? Can you or your company help out? If so give Jim a call ASAP at (701) 839-8614.

Good morning, Bob... love all these options to celebrate Independence Day and America's birthday! I was never frightened by fireworks as a child... in fact I don't remember not ever loving them.

Thank you Dorie Dillard Austin TX . People new to the community may find it hard to locate a celebration that works for their family so I put out the options I am aware of for them.

I think you are right Kathy Streib , it seems like the nation wants something to celebrate instead of the steady barrage of bad news we keep hearing.

Our family favorite is the celebration at Roosevelt Park (just across the street from our home) Myrl Jeffcoat . Minot has a ban on fireworks so if we want to enjoy fireworks we need to visit friends outside the City limits. Our previous Pastor used to host a GREAT party that had more gunpowder than most 3rd world nations but he has moved on... darn!

I love a good fireworks show Nina Hollander, Broker and I have always enjoyed using them myself BUT with Minot's ban on fireworks I have to brush up on my Bart Simpson: "I didn't do it, no one saw me, can't prove it, I didn't do it". 😉

Bob "RealMan" Timm hi Bob... of course, I saw some amazing fireworks in NYC over the East River. The best fireworks I ever saw was on Bastille Day in France in the city of Strasbourg. This was around 1985 and I still can see it all in my mind's eye.

I definitely prefer quality over quantity so I think it is a good thing that there are just a few quality events.

Bob, It should be great in Minot to see the crowds once again enjoying fun outdoor activities!
