Summertime in the Twin Cities means bicycle rides, lakeside hangouts and, of course, the Streets.mn picnic!
Mark your calendars! Saturday, August 5, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Boom Island Park in Minneapolis, Park Shelter B. Family, friends, kids and leashed pets are absolutely welcome to join.
Streets.mn will be providing grillable entrées, buns and condiments, as well as plates/utensils and canned beverages.
We are keeping it potluck-style for side dishes and desserts, so bring a dish to share. (Please put your name on your bowl or container, as well as a list of ingredients for people who might have food concerns.)
Learn more (and get excited!) about everything Streets.mn is doing this year. Walk, ride, roll, maybe even kayak over to Boom Island for an afternoon of food, games, and seeing friends old and new.
As with all of our events, we love our volunteers who help things run smoothly. If you are interested in helping with the picnic, email email@example.com. Volunteer as a grill master, greeter, games-runner or as part of the cleanup crew!
