Celebrate the Latest Link this Saturday

Come join us in the celebration of the completion of the latest link in the Mill Towns Trail.  The event is this Saturday, July 10th, 9:30 a.m., and will be held at the north end of Riverside Park.

This recently completed trail segment connects Riverside Park with the Sesquicentennial Legacy Plaza.  The segment is part of the Mill Towns Trail that will eventually connect Northfield with Faribault and Cannon Falls, and a larger trail system that will run from Mankato to Red Wing.

The event will also celebrate Maggie Lee.  A long-time resident of Northfield, Maggie’s vision and leadership helped create the downtown Riverwalk.  This latest segment of trail also links the Mill Towns Trail with Northfield’s Riverwalk.

After the event, we encourage you to stroll along the Cannon River, visit the Farmers’ Market, and explore the Riverwalk Market Fair.  Then stop in our historic, scenic and authentic downtown and experience our mix of one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants.  It’s all part of the heart of our community.

The event is free and open to the public.  Brief tributes, local treats, and live music will be served.
