Pub Crawl to help support the Elk River 4th of July celebration

Downtown bars have agreed to partner to bring about a pub crawl Saturday, June 30, for the benefit of the Elk River Independence Day celebration.

The crawl will kick off at 2:30 p.m. at the Elk River American Legion before making its way to Sunshine Depot, McCoy’s Pub and the Eagles Club.

The Legion will be accepting a good faith offering/donation to participate in the event.  With a donation, participants are qualified for drink specials and a drawing for prizes, including a grand prize at each establishment.  Participants must be present to win.

“This is a great opportunity to get out and meet people in your community, and also support the Fourth of July celebration,” said Mike Beyer of the Legion and a member of the Elk River Independence Day celebration. Good-faith offerings will be taken at the Elk River American Legion between 2;30 and 3 p.m. The rest of the schedule, which allows 15 minutes between each stop for walking, is as follows:

•American Legion: 3 to 4 p.m.

•Sunshine Depot: 4:15 to 5:15 p.m.

•McCoy’s: 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

•Eagles: 6:45 to 7:45 p.m.

The Elk River Independence Day celebration is from 5 to 10 p.m. on July 4 at Lions Park. Fireworks are at 10:15 p.m.
