Cancelled - Excelsior Firecracker Run
Firecracker Run - 2020 Event Cancelled
The Excelsior-Lake Minnetonka Chamber of Commerce has made the decision to cancel the July 4th celebration in Excelsior due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Included in that cancellation is of course the awesome Firecracker running event. MCE supports that difficult decision as we share the same goal of trying to keep families and communities safe.
Enjoy challenging, scenic terrain that includes stunning views of historic downtown Excelsior and Lake Minnetonka as you navigate the 1 Mile, 5K or 10K route. With rest stops, live music and plenty of enthusiastic volunteers along the way, runners can expect a fun-filled Fourth of July morning.
The Firecracker Run raises money to support the Excelsior Lake Minnetonka Chamber of Commerce July 4 Fireworks and kicks-off a full day of festivities in downtown Excelsior that includes a kid's parade, sand sculpture contest, popsicle social, petting zoo, and of course, fireworks.
Minnetonka Community Education coordinates the Excelsior Firecracker Running events in partnership with the Excelsior-Lake Minnetonka Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber of Commerce is in charge of the overall July 4th Celebration in Excelsior. 30% of the proceeds from the Firecracker Running events are donated by Minnetonka Community Education to the Chamber of Commerce for the Excelsior Fourth of July Fireworks display.
