Thousands to celebrate Somali Independence Day in Minneapolis
MINNEAPOLIS — Thousands of people are expected to flock to Minneapolis on Sunday for this year's Somali Independence Day festival.
Organizers say the event is designed to celebrate Somalia's independence, and also pay homage to the United States — the country that gave refugees a chance at a new life.
Sunday's event will be held from 1 to 9 p.m. on Lake Street, between Blaisdell and Pleasant Avenues, near the Somali Mall.
