Edina living is truly an artful experience, and it’s one best evidenced by the pulling together of our community to spread the word and secure the safe return of Dreams Take Flight. Visit Centennial Park’s most talked about sculpture and take the opportunity to explore the park’s other new additions, along with those at Grandview Square and 50th & France, if you haven’t yet had an opportunity. While new to us, their time in Edina is short-lived, and voting is already open for our People’s Choice Award favorite. Have a look and then cast yours here.

 

If touring Edina’s artwork gets you inspired, take advantage of these warm summer months to expand your artistic eye by visiting some of the many art fairs and festivals in the area. A trip to Wayzata offers its own eyeful of natural beauty along the shores of Lake Minnetonka, and that beauty only shines brighter when the Wayzata Art Experience makes its 14th annual return this Saturday and Sunday.

 

The two-day celebration of art, music, and food draws fans from the Twin Cities and beyond for a downtown experience unlike any other. Explore the works of area artisans or roll up your sleeves to make some magic of your own. Onsite, you’ll discover a range of vendors, plus food trucks, and adult beverages, too. Live music sets the tone from multiple stages, and projects within the Activity Zone will help keep idle hands busy.

 

As if that’s not already enough, free boat rides will be offered on Sunday, a classic boat show follows on Sunday, and local dining spots are slated to feature specials the whole weekend long. From happy hours, to live music, and late night menus, you’ll be well-fueled before, during, and even after you’ve finished canvassing the strip. Review the two-day event schedule, download an event map, and chart a course for artistic fanfare this weekend. What’s holding you back?

If you do end up swinging by Centennial Lakes Park this weekend, we can’t blame you for wanting to stick around a bit longer (especially if it’s your first time). Particularly in summer, the park is the epicenter of outdoor fun here in Edina. From paddle boating to putting, lawn bowling, and so much more, it’s a mini-getaway all its own. No matter the day, you’ll find something new to catch your eye or ear. On this week’s docket, consider:

 

 

After a day (or evening) in the park, nothing hits the spot like a craft beer and a bite. Show your community and swing by Town Hall Station to welcome them into ours. We’re excited to kick off our weekend with an award-winning brew (or two)!

 

Some of the best memories are made in flip flops.

Fun Fact: Did you know the first Father’s Day was first celebrated in Spokane, Washington in 1910? It wasn’t until 1972, when President Nixon signed Father’s Day into law, that the third Sunday of June became a fixed, national day of recognition. Nowadays, you’ll find Father’s Day celebrations and events across cities small and large—the tough choice in 2017 is choosing which best suits your family’s leading man.

 

Fortunately, Edina and surrounding communities provide limitless opportunity to tailor a day that’s just perfect for him and the whole crew—both on the day itself and across the extended weekend. Plus, given the range, there’s no reason to choose only one.

 

Topping our charts is the 23rd annual Stone Arch Bridge Festival, kicking off Friday evening with a free waterfront concert, followed by a series events through Father’s Day Sunday. The festival boasts more than 200 artists, live music across multiple stages, and a car show. Wind between the many vendors and displays, then slip into The Stone Arch Beer Sampler for your dad’s craft beer refuel. Best bet is to check out the performance lineup in advance, to print your festival map, and to build a strategic plan of attack. There’s seriously a whole lot happening.

 

Even closer to home, Parktacular kicks off Thursday for four days of its own fun in St. Louis Park, though we suggest Saturday as a best bet when ten area food trucks roll into Wolfe Park. The day also hosts their Grand Day Parade, expo, live music, plus fishing clinics for the kids, kayak rides for all, and good times for the whole family.

 

Dads can sometimes be a tough read when it comes to Father’s Day, so why not offer him a little bit of everything?

If you dad’s the golfing sort, we’re fortunate to share close company with some of the nation’s finest courses. And though Braemar’s regulation course remains under renovation, they’ve got a finger on the pulse and feature season-round opportunities for dad to diversify his game. Up this week:

 

 

Amid all the attention on dad’s weekend, don’t neglect this Thursday when the Centennial Lakes Farmers Market makes its return. Pick up the freshest and best local goods, and don’t forget your cooler for those perishables. With the Movie in the Park kicking off right after (this week’s is Ghostbusters), you might want to stick around for bit!

 

The older I get, the smarter my father seems to get.
