Pan-o-Prog: 2017 Fun Things To Do

Looking for something fun to do? Why not check out Panorama of Progress, known to locals as Pan-O-Prog, in Lakeville, MN from Monday July 4 through Sunday July 10, 2017. There is a lot to choose from with over 50 celebrations, events and activities that take place the week of July 4.

Since I moved here four years ago, I have heard every year about this event but have never been able to attend anything at Pan-O-Prog. This year I plan to enjoy some of the festivities and now just need to decide where I will start! Unfortunately, I will not be able to enjoy the 4th of July celebration which includes live music, inflatables and, of course, fireworks to be held at Lakeville North High School, but it sounds like a wonderful night. I’m not worried though because the fun continues all week with games, pageants, food trucks, a carnival, Cruise Night (classic car show) and a Grand Parade and that is just some of what is going on all week in Lakeville, MN. Since our offices at APPRO are right around the corner from all the action in downtown Lakeville, I will be sure to pop over to the Street Market that is happening from July 6-10, then to the Craft and Bake Sale at the Heritage Center and the Summer Art Sale at the Lakeville Area Arts Center, both from July 7-8. I look forward to seeing what I may want to add to my home décor and what baked goods I have to try. I have a 12 year old that may want to try out the Beach Bash – for Teens at Antlers Park for ages 11-14.  Not to be forgotten as fun for the whole family, including mine, is the Fun Fair Carnival at the Lakeville Area Arts Center Parking Lot from July 7-9 and the Grand Parade on July 8 downtown.

Are you going to Pan-O-Prog? Maybe we’ll see you there!!!
