Spend Labor Day in Cloquet

Cloquet will, once again, be the place to go to celebrate Labor Day. After a pandemic hiatus, the Oldtimers Banquet will return on Sunday, Sept. 4 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Four Seasons Event Center in Carlton. The parade will return, marching down Cloquet Avenue at 11 a.m., followed by children’s activities and food trucks at Veterans Park until 4 p.m. The Northeastern Hotel, Saloon and Grille will host its annual Labor Day car show — with high hopes for better weather and a better turnout than July Fourth brought.

Labor Day organizers Chad Tuura and Joe Kneisel are in desperate need of volunteers and financial donations to help with the events.

“We would love to have people join in to make this year’s event even better,” he said. Interested? Call Tuura at 218-590-0238.
