2020 Aquatennial- A Year Like No Other

For the last 80+ years Aquatennial has been the Premier Community Connector.  Providing Leadership, Scholarship, and Community to Minnesota communities and the country. During these unusual times we would like to share with you some of the greatest moments through the years of Aquatennial.

In 1940,Gene Autry,  the “Singing cowboy,” along with his horse, Champion helped the celebration begin.  We have all looked forward to what Aquatennial is going to bring during the Best Days of Summer, with some of the states best events.

These memories include:

The Aqua Follies at Wirth Park

Canoe Races

Powerboat Championships

The Championship Rodeo

The River Rats Water Ski Show

The Power Boat Squadron

Tennis Classic

Sand Castles

Milk Carton Boat Races

Torchlight Parade

and of course the Spectacular Fireworks.

These have all touched a place in the hearts of all Minnesotans at one time or another.

Help us this week to remember all Aquatennial, and all that Aquatennial Ambassadors Organization represents. 

Help us build for the future.
