On Thursday, Shakopee Derby Days, the community’s annual celebration, gets heated up and continues through Sunday. Count us among the amazed that a relatively small group of volunteers can pull off this exceptional four-day community wingding each year. Here’s a look at just a few of the daily highlights (most events are at Huber Park):
Motorists near Chanhassen and Shakopee will encounter a change in the detour for both directions of County Road 61 at around 6 p.m. on Friday, July 31. The County Roads 61 and 101 connection between Shakopee and Chanhassen will reopen to traffic, which has been closed since May 21.
