Spring has finally sprung and all of the record breaking snow from February has melted away! Temperatures are finally starting to cooperate and that means it’s time to get back out and about and enjoy everything Minneapolis has to offer.
This spring, Minneapolis has quite a few things to offer for all ages. Here is a list of some activities going on that you may want to add to your calendar.
NCAA Final Four
The NCAA men’s final four will be hosted at US Bank stadium this year and there are a bunch of activities associated with it. Not only will the top 4 teams be competing for a national champaionship, the final four also brings The Chainsmokers, the Jonas Brothers and Katy Perry and Zedd to town for some free concerts.
There is also an event for the kids that has them dribbling a basketball throughout downtown Minneapolis and they also have the ability to meet some of the biggest names in the NCAA tournament. If you cant find tickets to the game, you can enjoy watching the teams practice for free!

If you have take the drive from Minneapolis to St Paul over the past couple of years I bet you have been waiting to get inside Allianz Field. Well, this spring is your chance as the Minnesota United will kick off the inaugural season on April 13th.
Minnesota Craft Beer Festival
Breweries in Minnesota are some of the best in the nation. On April 13th, the convention center will be hosting the Minnesota Craft Beer Festival. There will be more than 300 beers from 90 plus breweries around the state.
Above are just a few of activities happening this spring right here in Minneapolis. There is plenty more to do and you can get a list of even more activities here.
You hear it every where you go, or you may even be the type of person we are talking about… you know the ones who are complaining about winter. You are so ready for winter to be over so you can start complaining about the hot and humid summer temperatures and the mosquitos that come along with it.
However, I am personally ready for some more snow! The only thing that really sucks about winter is the -50 degree windchill days. Other than that, I live in Minnesota so I can get out and enjoy all 4 seasons, and that includes sliding around in the snow.
Furthermore, winter came late this year. Do you remember the dusting of snow, or better yet brown Christmas we had this year. It did finally snow in December but it wasn’t until the last couple of days and it was only a few inches, hardly enough to enjoy.
Granted, we got dumped on in February of this year. We got a total of 39 inches of snow in 1 month! For us, that makes up for the mere 18 inches of snow we had the rest of the winter.
So here we are in the beginning of March and needless to say the weather forecast is saying another 2 to 4 inches of snow. I guess it should really be no surprise since March is typically the 3 snowiest month of the year.
Let’s enjoy the last month or so winter has to offer. Get out there and enjoy some snow tubing or ice skating because before you know it you will be itching for the end of summer and dreaming about the days when the mosquitos don’t bite.
