Held at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, this "once-in-a-lifetime" event will host lineworkers from around the U.S. who will compete in a nine-acre area containing approximately 130 pole structures, demonstrating their skill and competing for professional recognition. Admission is free and open to the public.
The opening ceremony with flag raising will begin at 8:00 a.m., and lineworker pole events will run from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Food, beverages and children's activities will be offered in the Big Top Tent. For more information, you can visit www.publicpower.org.
