There are plenty of annual events and festivals in this lovely city. In the winter the City of Lakes Loppet
takes place, which is a 35 km cross-country ski race through both Minneapolis and St. Paul. May brings the Art-A-Whirl
to the city, which isn’t some sort of avant garde carnival ride, but rather an Art Studio open house and tour in Northeast Minneapolis. Lastly, make sure to check out the Minnesota Fringe Festival
, home to hundreds of music, dance and theater performances across 20 venues.
