“It’s the largest festival in Two Harbors that is a city sanctioned event,” Heritage Days Chairman, Cheryl Sundstrom says.

Complete with a parade, fireworks and 42 vendors throughout the weekend.

“We didn’t know what to expect but it’s been phenomenal. We’ve got and done some exit interviews with most of our vendors and everybody is very please and very happy,” Sundstrom says.

Some vendors even were sold out of their products by Sunday while others restocked their supply.

“We thought we had prepped enough for the whole weekend. We ran through on Friday. We were here for the street dance Friday night. Went through all of our burgers. Stocked up again for Saturday morning. Blew through that what we thought we would be for the whole weekend. Sold that all out on Saturday,” Room at the Table Catering & Bakery Co-Owner, Kevin Peterson says.
