The parade route will be as it has been in the past beginning on 6th Ave N by the St. Cloud hospital and winding down to St. Germain Street ending by the St. Cloud Library.

The 5K run will happen on Sunday, June 26th at Lake George.  You can register online for that event as well.  

A City of St. Cloud Voluntary Waiver of Liability Agreement must also be submitted in conjunction with this registration form for EVERY INDIVIDUAL PARTICIPATING.

The annual Liberty Block Party is happening again this year with the Little River Band as the headliner.  Whitney Park will be the place for the block party Friday, June 24th.  And a reminder to bring your own chairs.

Summer will be here...eventually.  And there will be lots of events to enjoy around the St. Cloud area.
