This weekend I’ll be slinging Pork Chops on a Stick at Chaska’s River City Days in historic downtown Chaska on behalf of my church.
If you’ve never been to historic downtown Chaska, this annual community event is a great reason to come check it out.
Nestled on the banks of the Minnesota River and about a 15 minute drive from the Twin Cities, downtown Chaska is a genuine gem.
Century-old “Chaska brick” buildings and historic homes dot the streets, antique shops and locally-owned restaurants serve up malts, burgers and enchiladas, and the entire area is walkable. There’s also the picturesque Chaska Cubs Ballpark, the soaring Guardian Angels Church cathedral and Greg Swan’s house. (ha).
River City Days features model racetracks, bouncy castles and face painting for the kids, a 5K Fun Run and beer garden for the adults, and a community parade, bands, craft and food vendors galore for the whole family. See you there!

What a crowd!
The Chaska Fire Department brought a pumper truck, hooked up a sprinkler and showed off with some firefighter games like “spray the can with the hose.” Pretty fun to watch, actually.
My church pumped out the delicious food again with our Pork Chop and Roasted Corn on a stick booth.
And Grant got to jump in the inflatables, race his favorite NASCAR and spend some quality time with Grandpa.
More photos here. Parade is tomorrow!

Hey hey – it’s Chaska River City Days this weekend.
City Square Park is packed full of food vendors, inflatables for the kids, and music and refreshments for the parents. I just love seeing historic downtown Chaska so packed full of people.
It was two years ago this weekend that Jenny and I fell in love with the community, and RCD had a lot to do with it. My parents are in town from Florida, so we’re be taking them tomorrow. Our church, Oasis Church, is again hosting the pork chop on a stick booth. Can’t wait for one of those.
And the parade is Sunday at 1 p.m. The photo is my son from last year. Gotta love a parade with candy…especially when you can lift one or two pieces without them noticing (guilty as charged).
