Shakopee Derby Days canceled for 2016 amid investigation over finances


A popular summer celebration in Shakopee has been called off for 2016 after police opened an investigation into the finances of the organization that runs Derby Days, city officials said.

The Derby Days board of directors confirmed that the annual party usually held in early August in Huber Park won’t go on this year, but they hope to bring the festival back in 2017.

“We are taking time to implement new policies and procedures that include new internal controls,” the group said in a posting on Facebook.
