Good news, everybody: The Stone Arch Bridge -- a Minneapolis landmark that recently faced closure due to lack of repair funds -- will remain open for the foreseeable future. That's great news for the annual Stone Arch Bridge Festival, which announced details for its June 15-17 run late last Friday. 

What can you expect at the free fest along the downtown riverfront? Dozens of live music performances over three stages, for starters. Also on tap: art, food, beer, family-friendly activities, and a classic car show. Ol' dad -- one of two key stakeholders during dads 'n' grads season -- might especially dig the latter event, as it runs through Father's Day Weekend. 

But enough speculating! Here are the cold, hard facts of SABF '18:
