MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minneapolis Aquatennial is making some changes for its annual event, which is in late July this year.

Instead of it being 10 days long, the festival will only be four days in 2015. It will go from July 22-25. They are also getting rid of the Milk Carton Boat Races and the Sand Castle competition at Lake Calhoun.

The Minneapolis Downtown Council said attendance at those events was not growing. They are planning to announce some new events. And they hope a new schedule over just one weekend will mean more people will attend more events.
