Stone Arch Bridge Festival is Happening This Weekend

It's summer, which means festival season is in full swing, and this weekend is no exception.  The Stone Arch Bridge Festival is happening today through Sunday (June 17-19) at - you guessed it - the Stone Arch Bridge (and St. Anthony Main).

We're not complaining, of course, considering that summer means endless food-on-a-stick and fresh lemonade.  Plus, there's nothing like a weekend day spent strolling through the tents of local artists.  And since Father's Day is this Sunday, it's a great place to snag a last minute gift (I'm personally a fan of the pottery mugs).  Here's a breakdown of the schedule:

  • Friday June 17th, 12:00pm-8:00pm
  • Saturday June 18th, 11:00am-10:00pm
  • Sunday June 19th, 11:00am-5:00pm

The Stone Arch Bridge Festival is perfect for anyone and anything - family-friendly strolls (face painting!), beer enthusiast get togethers (beer tent!), or if you're more of a sit-and-people-watch kind of person, grab a seat at Tugg's Tavern or the Wilde Roast Cafe and cool off with a drink and some appetizers while you check out the scenery.

It's supposed to be a hot weekend here in Minneapolis though, so don't forget that sunscreen and snag a few bottles of water along your stroll.  Be sure to catch some of the live music happening, and tonight (Friday) at about 9:30pm, we'll get this summer's first fireworks show - you don't want to miss it.
