Luverne celebrates 150th anniversary

Luverene, MN Luverne, Minnesota celebrated a huge milestone this weekend.

The community celebrated its 150th anniversary with several celebratory events beginning Thursday.

Saturday morning there was a huge parade down Luverne's Main Street.

The Minnesota community usually has a lot of summer celebrations, but event goers say that this year is special.

“It’s kind of a big deal. We’re a small community. Actually I learned a bunch this week reading up the history where we started from. It’s a heck of a celebration you know. It’s a long time. I certainly won’t see another 150,” Luverne resident Tom Stetterrett said.

The celebration continued with a fireworks display at the Luverne City Park.

Ending the 150th celebration on Sunday was a community worship service and birthday party.
