Willmar Fests ski show and fireworks are tonight

WILLMAR -– Two of the biggest Willmar Fests events are happening today. The Little Crow Ski Team show and fireworks that had been scheduled for Saturday were postponed until today due to the weather.

The ski show will begin at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, free of charge, at Robbins Island in Willmar and the fireworks will be at 10 p.m. The ski show will be free of charge because of the postponement, James Miller, Willmar Fests board vice president, said Saturday in announcing the changes. Two Saturday events were moved indoors – the beach party and the performance by the band Hitchville were at the Civic Center last night.
