Nisswa hosted a full day of events July 3 to celebrate Independence Day.
A record-breaking crowed participated in Turtle Races, and visitors embarked on stage coach rides and cooled off by playing Water Wars.
Live music played at Nisswa Square and the Pickle Factory, where a street dance capped off the day’s festivities.
