Yes it is winter. Yes there is a lot of snow in Red Wing. But it is getting hot indoors. February 5th. at the Sheldon Theater, catch Chicago’s Jimmy Johnson Blues Band. You will be shaking in your seats! Or, for something totally different, visit Sargent’s Nursery for a Quilt Show. That’s right, tropical plants, a warm greenhouse, and Quilts! Who knew?
Currently there is 16 inches of snow on the ground. It is a perfect time for downhill skiing at Welch Ski Village, cross country skiing at numerous groomed trails, or sitting by the fire with a nice glass of wine.

If you are looking for an old time feel to the Fourth of July, travel no further than Red Wing. Take a Mississippi River cruise and watch the bald eagles soar. A historic trolley tour is a great way to learn about the rich architecture that exists in Red Wing. Listen to live reggae (????) on the river bank. Eat an old fashioned hot dog and lounge in a park. And, of course, at the end of the day watch a fantastic fireworks display over the Mississippi River.

Imagine watching a fantastic fireworks display from this vantage point. The Mississippi River winds behind the tall white grain tower and that’s where this year’s 4th of July fireworks will be displayed. Also, just across the river the Harbor Bar will have live Reggae music. There is also a great Mississippi River eagle watch cruise that leaves from Red Wing each day and a fun trolley ride tour through our historic city. The Moondance Inn is offering a free trolley tour and river cruise to our guests that stay two consecutive nights July 2nd and 3rd or 3rd and 4th. Check our SPECIALS PAGE for details.
