I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.
This arc took a total of three scenes in the season (four if you count the scene where she’s not in the visiting room) and it still carried more weight than everything Larry’s dealt with the entire series.

The Minneapolis Aquatennial Celebrates 75 Years
On May 24, 1939, a group of Twin Cities businessmen conceived the idea of the Minneapolis Aquatennial at a parade for the visiting King of England in Winnipeg. They were inspired by the fact that hundreds of thousands of people would attend a parade on a rainy day to see a king. Thus, they decided to stage their own local celebration, create their own royalty, and celebrate summer in Minneapolis.
They chose the first (and present) dates of the Aquatennial by researching weather data back to 1898 and determined that the third week of July offered the safest weather for a parade. It didn’t rain on the Aquatennial parades the first year or for 10 years to follow. But for added security, Aquatennial officials asked a local group of Catholic nuns, the Little Sisters of the Poor, to pray for good weather each year.

The Minneapolis Aquatennial, in its 75th year, continues the tradition of celebrating summer in Minneapolis with sporting events around the lakes and rivers, music, fireworks, arts, food, games, and more. Royalty is also a key element of the Aquatennial—the concept on which the festival is based.
