Minneapolis residents want to stay active and interact with their neighbors. The success of the first Open Streets event in June led to four more events, each with the aim of making people more comfortable with walking, biking, and skateboarding the busy streets of Minneapolis.
In Minneapolis, you’ll never run out of activities, and there’s always something inviting that you should join. Here are some other ideas:
Start a Closet Clean-up Sale
Those old clothes you have no use for anymore can give you extra money if you set up a “garage” sale. This doesn’t necessarily have to be in your garage. It can be outside, in the park, provided you have the permit. People are always open to shopping for great finds, so any discount sale is sure to have a crop of admirers. What’s important is that people can see what you have set up, so they will check what you’re offering. Prepare for any weather changes, though. Be ready and get a rental clear span tent to protect your belongings and shelter the crowd if it rains.
Plan a Weekend Barbecue
You don’t have to sell anything to start a public gathering. Sometimes, all you want to do is have fun. What better way to do that than by inviting everyone to a weekend barbecue? It’s a way to catch up with your friends and to relax after a long work week. Make it as private or as public as you want, as long as you make sure there’s enough food to go around. You can always check some great barbecue recipes and make sure there’s enough to fill your guests. You can also ask neighbors to join and prepare drinks and cocktails so that everyone can be a part of your outdoor neighborhood party.
Minneapolis is a place where you can have fun with friends and family by doing the most simple activity. Don’t waste that good weather and your free time. Plan something soon.
