Shakopee: Cantebury Park

(official site)

Read our blog and follow us on facebook and twitter!

I remember my parents would take my siblings and I here as kids. I don't remember much of the times we were there, but it was an interesting time for me. I went here again, but this time as an adult yesterday (Sunday, August 26th of 2007).

My friend Sean and Dan (co-worker of Sean) waiting for the first race to start in this would be beautiful sunny afternoon

Unfortunately, these are all the pictures as my battery died. My parents ended up coming later after the 4th race.
