A special “Welcome Home” event is being held in the City of Sleepy Eye today (MON). The community will be celebrating the return of former Miss Sleepy Eye Anna Surprenant, who was named one of the Princesses of the Minneapolis Aquatennial recently. The Welcome Home Celebration begins with an Open House Reception at the Depot Museum in Sleepy Eye at 5pm today. There will be a brief program congratulating Anna at 5:30, and a Parade in her honor then begins at 6pm. The parade will head north on 1st Avenue from the Depot Museum to St. Mary’s Street, then head west to Highway 4 and south to Rice Street, east to 1st Avenue to Main Street, and then east to 2nd Avenue Northeast.
