Come to beautiful White Bear Lake to celebrate Manitou Days, a three-week summer festival showcasing some of the greatest things about this lakeside community.  For 47 years this annual summer ritual has been a favorite of locals and visitors.

The fun kicks-off with Marketfest and ends on the Fourth of July with a spectacular fireworks display to music over the lake. One of festival highlights is the Grande Parade, which travels through the scenic downtown and along Lake Avenue, ending at Memorial Beach where the Free and Easy Band will perform at the Beach Dance following the parade.

Ride your bike. Build a sand castle. Enter a fishing contest. Go for a pontoon ride. Shop Downtown White Bear Lake. Do yoga on the beach. Hunt for a medallion. Dance under the stars. There is something for everyone!

Manitou Days runs Thursday, June 18 – Saturday, July 4, 2015 and with more than 70 events there is something for everyone! Check out our online Calendar or the 2015 Schedule of Events for complete event details.

The White Bear Events Planning Committee meets regularly – check out the calendar for dates and times. Meetings are open to the public and new volunteers are always welcome.

Tally’s Dockside is a landmark that dates back to 1939 and the resort era of White Bear Lake.
In 1990, Keith and Jan became Tally’s current and longest owner and changed the name to Tally’s Dockside. Tally’s is still a quaint and charming paradise! A casual atmosphere and so much character – “Paradise Found”, Keith says. In 2008, our dream to provide food became a reality. We opened C.G. Hooks Eatery, serving premium “in-house, slow-smoked” Bar-B-Que specializing in pulled pork, ribs and beef brisket, the Ole Timey Memphis way. We take pride striving for excellence and consistency in our scratch kitchen, providing superior tenderness and natural juiciness. We don’t believe in short cuts.

Our mission is to help all visitors to Tally’s Dockside & CG Hooks Eatery to “Take in the Splendor of White Bear Lake and enjoy the Boathouse, BBQ Restaurant, Marina and Pub. Life here is “Spagnanamous”. Location: 4441 Lake Avenue South White Bear Lake, Minnesota 651-493-6763
