For the first time, Open Streets Minneapolis will host an event in winter. During the day, folks will be able to explore Nicollet and Grant Street with the roads closed to motor vehicles. Take a stroll on foot, hop on a bike, or even cross-country ski or pull the kids along via sled if there’s snow. Along the route, you’ll find sidewalk sales, outdoor sports, live music, and more hosted by businesses in the neighborhood. Step inside for a drink, or pack a thermos with hot cocoa for warmth. The route ends at Loring Park, where Holidazzle will offer an ice rink, a beer garden, traditional food, shopping, and fireworks. Nicollet Mall, from Fifth Street South to Grant Street onward to Loring Park in Minneapolis.
