A Blooming Prairie 4th grader's design was selected as the winning design for the upcoming 4th of July celebration in Blooming Prairie. The design is of an Awesome Blossom wearing a mask and sunglasses that reflect the American flag.

A big congratulations to Leah Watson for the winning design! You can see the button below.

Buttons will be available for purchase beginning on Wednesday, May 26th at various retailers for $3. Button-wearing individuals will receive 50 cents off beer at the beer garden, and also be eligible for free trolley rides during the celebration.

Last year, there wasn't a 4th of July celebration due to COVID-19. This year the parade is back as well as other activities that people will recognize and remember as being traditional Blooming Prairie 4th of July activities.
