Oh, August. There’s no better time to get outside and have some fun before we return to the grindstone of the rest of the year. And there is so much that our Twin Cities Region has to offer! So this weekend, get outside with the family before the school year starts up again. Friday, August 16 Free Outdoor Activities at Target Field Station Minneapolis, MN Summer may be almost over, Minneapolis, but there’s still time to soak up some sun. And our beautiful Hennepin County is here to help! Go Outside with Hennepin County is offering free movie and trivia nights through August. Get your friends and family together and partake in some healthy competition as you test your knowledge against other teams. Prizes, of course, are available!
