Email News Alerts

Though Detroit Lakes' 72nd annual Northwest Water Carnival doesn't officially get into full swing until next week, there are a few "warm-up" sporting events scheduled for this weekend.


First up is the Lake Swim, which takes place from 8-10 a.m. on Saturday, July 7. As the name suggests, this competitive racing event involves swimming on Detroit Lake itself.
