Summer is winding down, and the weather is becoming cooler. It’s time to put away the swimsuits and dig out the sweaters. The kids will be needing their backpacks for school again, too. Here are some fun activities for the beginning of Autumn.
September Races - If you like running, you can find lots of races in September in the Twin Cities. Labor day weekend is particularly busy. Some of them are for very good causes. Here’s a link to the schedule of races.
Renaissance Festival - Labor Day weekend is also a good time to experience a “Passport to Adventure” at the Renaissance Festival. There are exhibits and activities for every age and every interest!
Blue Moon Art Tour - Another good event for Labor Day Weekend is the 9th Annual Blue Moon Art Tour. You can visit artists at their studios along Blue Moon Road in the Cable/Drummond area.
Second Annual Plane Pull - Get your team together and gather pledges. You can use up to eight people to try to pull a jet across the tarmac. This contest will test your strength and support the Special Olympics at the same time.
Farmers’ Market - One of the great things about Autumn is that it is harvest time. The farmers will be taking their produce to sell at the various Farmers’ Markets. You can usually find much more than tomatoes and corn. Many people bring homemade jams and jellies, artifacts, soaps, and candies and such. Shopping there is good for the local economy also! Here is a schedule of farmers’ markets in the area.
Burnsville Fire Muster - This is a huge festival with events and exhibits for the whole family. It runs September 8 - 12, beginning with a huge block party. After that, it’s everything from a car show to a business expedition, with activities for every age and interest in between.
St. Paul Oktoberfest - The St. Paul Oktoberfest has a change of venue. For its fifteenth annual celebration it is moving to Rice Park, and the dates are September 18 & 19 this year. Brush up your polka and stop by for a brat!
Bloomington Heritage Days - This festival also has a new home. It is moving to the grounds of Nativity of Mary Catholic Church and School. The whole family can enjoy this celebration with live entertainment, a car show, and wonderful food and drink!
The Walker Center - This year marks the 75th anniversary for the Walker Center, and they are celebrating with special exhibitions in several categories.
Minnesota State Fairgrounds - Events scheduled for the grounds include 2 horse shows, a model railroad show and sale, a Half Price Books clearance sale, a dog show, and a Metro Area Children’s Water Festival. These all occur in the latter half of September. Here’s a link to the schedule.
