Open Streets Minneapolis
Of all the Open Streets events scheduled this summer, none seems more natural (and less disruptive to car traffic) than this weekend's closing of Minnehaha Avenue. Here, the bike- and pedestrian-friendly road will become even more so, as it will be closed to motorized traffic. As usual, there will be a slew of activities to enjoy, including bike polo demonstrations, live music outside the Dairy Queen, a pop-up playground for kids, a farmers' market, and skateboarding lessons. Grab a snack, get a massage, or bring a camera and play some photo bingo. For a complete list of happenings, check out openstreetsmpls.com. Minnehaha Avenue, from East Lake Street to Godfrey Parkway, Minneapolis.
Sun., Aug. 11, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2013
