Students can redeem their passes via an Every Kid Outdoors voucher.

Twin Ports- Now that the roses have bloomed, so have two annual traditions set for this weekend. On Saturday, July 9 in Duluth, there is the 2022 Rose Fest in the Rose Garden at Leif Erikson Park. The free event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Activities include garden tours, tips on caring for your roses, and a treasure hunt for the kids. Then, on Sunday it’s Superior’s turn with the 2022 Rose Show in the Billings Park Community Center. It will be quite a sight, with hundreds of rose varieties displayed side by side. That free event runs from 1:30 to 4:30 in the afternoon.
