Snellman Days: A weekend full of area activities awaits

Email News Alerts

Though the first day of autumn officially falls on Sept. 22, most people consider Labor Day to be summer’s last gasp.

As such, there’s a full slate of activities taking place in the lakes area next weekend.


For roughly a decade, the tiny community of Snellman has chosen the Labor Day weekend for its annual Snellman Days celebration — and this year is no exception.

Snellman Days will take place next Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 30-31.
