U-Haul featuring Runestone mystery to be in Kensington parade Sunday

The mystery of the Kensington Runestone - and a whole lot of fun - are in the spotlight in Kensington this weekend.

The community is hosting its annual Runestone Days celebration with a variety of events on June 18-19.

A U-Haul van emblazoned with a graphic about the mystery of the Runestone will be on display near Highway 55 and the park. The Runestone story was selected by the company to be featured on 2,300 of its vans as part of the "Venture Across America" campaign. The Viking ship will also be on display.

The van and ship will be part of a big parade that will take place at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. A tractor pull and many other events are planned.
