Spirit Valley Days is going into it's 40th anniversary this year and it all kicks off on Thursday, August 1st.

The annual event celebrates West Duluth and is so much more than just a street dance. The whole community comes out to be part of all kinds of events.  Included is Duluth's largest parade of the summer and of course the pet parade.  There is a pet parade, a 5K run/walk, a canoe and kayak tour of the St. Louis River, games for the kids, tons of food vendors, live music, the street dancing, and my personal favorite, the classic car show.

While everything starts on Thursday, the Kyle Smalley Memorial Car Show is Saturday, August 3rd, from 4PM-7PM.  It's one you don't want to miss.  Kyle was loved by many and they all show up in memoriam of him in droves, with all kinds of cars you will enjoy drooling over.
