It’s Earth Day weekend, and it’s time to roll up those sleeves and give planet Earth a helping hand. Throughout Edina and the surrounding county, you’ll find a range of clean-ups and activities in our many parks. To get in on the action, simply bring along some gloves and a bit of grit.

 

Swing by Centennial Lakes, check into one of more than thirty sites across Minneapolis Parks, or explore other, nearby options. The Saturday times vary, but you’ll be through by early afternoon (at the latest) and feel even better about your day via good work done for community (plus, the bit of added exercise and fresh air never hurts).

 

 

Alone, the small efforts on a singular day might not feel like they make much a difference, but the little things we do go a long way. What started as an American tradition forty-seven years ago has since grown to a worldwide movement that engages more than 1 billion civic-minded citizens today. Earth Day encircles and unites our planet; imagine what we might accomplish with more consistent collaboration?

Feel the earth under your fingers at a one-day only pottery workshop taking place at the Edina Art Center this Saturday. It’s a daylong event, and you’ll want to register ahead (and maybe pack a lunch) for this artistic commemoration of Earth Day.

 

Speaking of artistic endeavors, Let’s Go Crazy with a four-day tribute to the life and work of Prince. Held at Paisley Park, there will be music, merchandise, celebrity guests, and a host of activities through Sunday evening. It’s the first year of what will become an annual tradition, and it’s the one-year anniversary since the passing of an icon.

 

 

While those calendars are open, take note that Taste of Edina is just around the next bend. You won’t want to miss out on the food, wine, and flavors from top Edina chefs. There will also be plenty of craft beer for those brew lovers out there, so grab some tickets before your dish has dashed!

 

As long as I do not take myself too seriously, I should not be too badly off.

Coming ‘round the bend, the 2017 Triple Crown kicks off with the Kentucky Derby on Saturday May 6th, followed two-weeks later by the Preakness, and wrapping up with the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 10. It’s a long stretch to traverse, and only twelve thoroughbreds have taken home the crown in all of horse racing history. Do we have lucky thirteen in this year’s lineup?

 

Derby season, another surefire sign of spring, calls for extravagant hats, classic mint julips, and a dash of stylish sophistication. This Thursday, the season kicks off early with Readying for Derby Day—an April Block Party at 50th & France, and an early shot to score some of this year’s best looks.

 

From 4:00-10:00 PM, take early reprieve from the workweek and swing by participating shops for specials, giveaways, fun, and fashion. Polo for Philanthropy hosts the event, so you can rest assured knowing that funds raised will benefit Minnesota charities while you get a leg-up on race-day. Featuring a range of participating businesses, each will offer a selection of goods great for derby day; plus, a troop of tiny horses will be strolling the block. How cute is that?

 

Top to bottom, you can get the full look with a sequential stroll through top shops:

 

  • Cos Bar – Revitalize with a skin treatment or pick up that perfect, spring shade
  • Luxury Garage Sale – Snag some designer threads and vintage items for a race-day look that’s distinctly your own
  • Fringe – You’re never fully dressed without the right hat and accessories

 

And when your frolic is through, wind down with the gang at Edina Grill, where julips, cocktails, and other specials offer added relief from the weekday grind.

Of course, amid the fancy and fanfare of early derby season, there’s still Easter on the short horizon. If you’re looking to secure your Sunday reservation or to complement the holiday with an earlier, Saturday brunch, you don’t have too far to travel. Reservations are still available for some Edina favorites, so hop to it.

 

 

And of course, from film, to music, to all arts in between, there’s always opportunity to nourish your creativity in and around Edina. Immerse yourself in a bit of the arts and discover your own therapy.

 

 

Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.
