The fireworks are over and it's time to gear up for an even bigger celebration this weekend -- the opening of the Northwest Water Carnival.


Now in its 74th year, the NWC is Detroit Lakes' premier summer festival, attracting thousands of visitors over the course of a 10-day period.

This year's incarnation begins Friday with the crowning of the new Miss Northwest. The scholarship pageant gets underway at 7 p.m. Friday in the Historic Holmes Theatre.
