Stillwater Lift Bridge & Loop Trail celebration, ribbon cutting ceremony set for Saturday, August 14, 2021


WHAT: Celebration of the one-year anniversary of the Lift Bridge and Loop Trail opening

WHEN: 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 14, 2021.

WHERE: On Chestnut Street, west of the Stillwater Lift Bridge

WHO: Federal, state and local officials will gather to mark the one year anniversary of the opening of the refurbished lift bridge and loop trail in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

WHY: Last year’s planned grand opening celebration was cancelled due to the pandemic. So we’re going to celebrate the first year of the lift bridge and loop trail opening.     

DIRECTIONS: Media parking will be provided in the parking lot on Water Street, along Lowell Park just north of the lift bridge plaza. Public parking will be available on-street or at municipal lots along the St. Croix riverfront.
