Food Network

The Food Network will be filming one of its programs at the Twins Days Festival this year.  Filming will take place on Saturday, August 8.  A very limited number of tickets will be allocated on Friday (Aug.7) at the Welcome Wiener Roast for the dinner being prepared by a Food Network celebrity chef on Saturday evening.   The Food Network will also be filming throughout the Festival at different times.

The show will air approx. 10 weeks after the Festival.
Please DO NOT call or email the Twins Days office or Food Network for tickets.

Fireworks Are Back!

The fireworks are BACK! As some of you may recall, the popular fireworks display had been cancelled last year, due to new Astroturf on the athletic field, and concerns regarding fire safety. Well, the launch site has been relocated, and all parties involved have given their approval for the display to continue. So come on down and enjoy the show! Saturday, August 5th at the festival site. Display begins at dusk.
