Over 100 parents, kids and others gathered at Caponi Art Park for their weekly "Family Fun Tuesdays." A Twin Cities group, "The Maroons," played music inspired by Trinidad and Jamaica under the green canopy of huge oak trees.

Red X 5

Dare Van Waes, Miss Minnesota Teen 2013, waved at the July 4th parade crowds.

Dan Sjolseth and part of his family greeted Eaganites and guests along the parade route. 

What parade would be complete without some big, red fire trucks?

He was clowning around along Yankee Doodle Road...

With 5 photos of RED vehicles, does it feel like a parade?
Marching bands, floats and much more joined in!
