It may not feel like it this week (and the weather forecast has mentioned another chance of snow on Friday!), but Spring really is on its way. And with Spring comes all kinds of fun. Over on the Facebook page we’re running a poll about favorite Spring activities; what are yours?
In the lead so far is the anticipated opening of the Twin Cities farmers markets: Spring greens will be ready for harvesting soon, and the farmers markets are a great way to get outside, get some fresh food, listen to live music, take in the chow at one of the food trucks, and enjoy being in a crowd after Winter’s long isolation.
My own favorite, the Heart of the Beast MayDay parade, is running in second place. Public workshops for people who want to help make the parade start this Saturday. This is a great activity for kids of all ages, but especially for 8-12 year olds who like to make stuff. You can get your hands dirty in clay, papier maché and paint, and then march down Bloomington Avenue wearing your own creation. We’re doing the parade again this year–I hope to see you there!
Other respondents to the poll have called out baseball, the Mississippi River clean-up projects, and the opening of the Big Back Yard at the Science Museum as their favorite Spring activities.
What do you look forward to? Let us know!
