Despite road construction and hot weather, the annual Snellman Days celebration featured a large crowd and a number of vendors for the celebration over Labor Day weekend. A new mayor was sworn in as part of the celebration. The new mayor of Snellman is Brynlee Mitchell who is granddaughter to Lori Mitchell (past mayor in 2013-2014). Brynlee (3-years-old) plans on starting a day care center and ice cream shop in Snellman. Volunteers wanted to thank Melvin Longfors, Celia Piippo, Linda Pihlaja, and Linda Harris for extra help in getting the event organized.
