The Brainerd Jaycees street dance was set for 7 p.m. to midnight Saturday, July 6, at Sixth and Laurel streets with music by the Operators. The event will cost $2.
The Nisswa July Fourth celebration was to wrap up Saturday, July 6, with the Nisswa Fire Department's dance and Battle of the Bands featuring Silent Partner and The Retractions at the fire hall. The gates will open at 5:30 p.m. with food and concessions provided by the Nisswa Fire Department and beer provided by the Nisswa Jaycees. Tickets at the door will be $10.
