Live in or near the St. Cloud area in Minnesota? Every year, the Rotary Club at St. George takes advantage of the summer heat to hold the annual Summertime by George Festival on the shores of the newly-renovated Lake George. The festival began in June, but runs for 12 weeks every Wednesday until August 26th. The event opens to the public at 5pm; the music begins at 6 and lasts until 9.
Admission to Summertime by George is entirely free to the public. Other activities at the festival include the Middle Town Market, providing access to a diverse variety of local vendors and food. The Eastman Tavern is nearby and serves craft beers, wine, and snacks, and the little ones can play to their hearts’ content in Little Georgetown. There’s also a trolley that runs through the area every 10 minutes Wednesday evenings, which makes parking much easier.
The Summertime by George Festival celebrates fun, live musical performances as well as local artisans and culture, nearby eateries, and area breweries. Whether you’re getting a drink with friends or looking for an evening with your family, Lake George has an all-summer-long event to keep you entertained. Stop in and tell us all about it at Don Robinson Mitsubishi.
If you are looking for something to do this month, we at Don Robinson Mitsubishi highly recommend taking time to go to the St. Cloud Granite City Days. This year’s festival is celebrating 10 years of amazing events and will take place starting Thursday, June 23rd through Sunday, June 26th.
The official Opening Ceremonies begin at 6:30pm on Thursday, but for all you early birds, there’s plenty going on before the festival officially starts. There is a variety of event and entertainment available during the four-day festival. Each day is jam-packed with great activities such as a Lemonade Concert and Art Fair, a Medallion Hunt, a Parade, a Fishing Derby, and even a Civil Air Patrol Fly-In Pancake Breakfast.
There are also canoe rides from Beaver Island to River Bluffs Park and a Gran Fondo Bike Ride at Lake George, which is a new addition to this year’s festivities. In addition to many great activities for you and your family to do, this festival will see it’s fair share of amazing entertainers, such as TONIC SOL-FA, Justin Ploof & the Throwbacks, and Jack and Kitty.

New Year’s Eve Bowling Bash
If you are looking for a great place to take the kids and still have a good time, Great River Bowl is the place to be. The best part about this party is that there are two!

There’s also a chance to win some cool prizes.
Fireworks by Lake George
Lake George is perhaps one of the best places to see fireworks and for the 2nd year in a round, they will be letting them off for New Year’s! Our towns’ Mayor Kleis will be leading the countdown and this free event will host hot cider, coffee and bagel bites to everyone!
