Crowds enjoy food and entertainment at Booster Days

Thousands of visitors to Hudson enjoyed the annual Fourth of July fireworks display on Saturday night. Lakefront Park was packed, the river was literally full of boats and parked cars lined the streets up to eight blocks away. The display is sponsored by the city of Hudson. Photo by Margaret A.

The annual Booster Days parade drew a larger than usual crowd which lined the parade route.

The event featured over 90 units including the always popular Zor Road Runners, who are members of the St. Croix Valley Shrine Club. They participate in over 22 parades each summer in western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota. The club raises money to support 22 Shrine Children's Hospitals throughout North America.
