Twice a year, once in the summer, and once in the dead of winter,
Mankato comes alive with Submarine Days. This week of festivites
celebrates the great Mankato Submarine Industry.
"Let's get that
Shot a real torpedo!!!
A Submarine Days Thrill!
There is no other place on earth were you can cruise on board an
atomic submarine as it goes on sea trials in the Minnesota River. Board
the USS City Of Mankato as she goes through mock drills and battles,
speed dives and missile firings. Every child onboard gets the
opportunity to shoot a live torpedo in the famous "Battle of Lost
Ships". Or view the festivites as you picnic on the beach or watch the
"Samurai Surfers" dodge torpedos as they ride the waves to shore! (Bet
you can't hit just one!!! ;-)
