Last weekend our nation celebrated it's independence. Every year, people throw on red, white and blue outfits and take a moment to enjoy summer and reflect on what it means to be American.

One of my traditions for that day is to take the short drive and check out Minnesota's oldest 4th of July Celebration held in North Morristown. There is a charming parade where listeners may have seen our very own Jerry Groskruetz waving from his John Deere tractor. Each year ther is also a Patriotic Program where I spotted KDHL News Director Gordy Kosfeld.

I strolled through the silent auction, chatted with friends, and listened to the band. The weather was perfect, and as always, the North Morristown celebration was a great way to start the long weekend, and a tradition that I love. Its such a peaceful, relaxed, and repsectful celebration.  

I also found time to attend a wedding, spend some time with family, catch up with a couple friends, and grill out. What are your 4th of July Traditions? How did you spend the long weekend?
