Hello Minnesota!   Looking for things to do this weekend?  Check out this list of things to do while visiting Minneapolis and see if something on it peaks your interest.

First off, try attending the Basilica Block Party!  This fun event takes place this Friday and Saturday, July 10th and 11th, and is being held at the Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  This event started in 1995, and has since grown to include 15,000 people in attendance, and raised about $100,000.  All of the proceeds fund the ongoing restoration of the Basilica, a landmark parish located on Hennepin Avenue in downtown Minneapolis.

This year, look for performances from groups such as The Black Crowes, Mat Kearney, Erin McCarley, The Jawhawks, and Serena Ryder on Friday night. Saturday features equally exciting performances from Counting Crows, Matt Nathanson, The Hold Steady and Tim Mahoney. For a preview of what you can expect, check online to see the Basilica choir sing a rendition of "Hangin' Around" by Counting Crows, "She Talks to Angels" by The Black Crowes and The Hold Steady's "I'm Discouraged." Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster or at The Local, a bar in downtown Minneapolis.

While you are downtown this weekend, try doing some shopping at the Fun Sisters Boutique located in the Skyway of the US Bank building at 101 East 5th Street. This is a great place to shop for designer purses, accessories and other luxury items.  It is only open certain times of the year, so take advantage this summer while you can!   If sports are more your idea of a good time, make sure to bring your Minnesota Twins spirit with you when you come to downtown Minneapolis. They are hosting the Chicago White Sox Friday at 8:10 PM, Saturday at 7:10 PM, and Sunday at 2:10 PM.

Who knew that there was so much to do in downtown Minneapolis in any given weekend?

Have fun and enjoy one of America's most exciting cities!
