THE BEST OF SOUTHWEST MINNEAPOLIS — brought to you by the Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association (LYNAS)
Thurs., Aug. 1
Lynnhurst Recreation Center Fields (south of 50th St.)
50th St. & Minnehaha Pkwy.
Credit cards and cash will be accepted.
Food and Drink: Our special guest this year is El Jefe; they will be serving innovative street tacos, taquitos and nachos. We’re also welcoming back Fair Faves, featuring mini-donuts, hand-cut fries, and cheese curds. The Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association (LYNAS) will be serving up pizza, hot dogs, ice cream, cookies, ice cold drinks, and healthy side options such as carrots and dip, apples, and baked snacks.
Music: The Charlie Smith Band playing rock and R & B covers.
For the Kids: Inflatables, carnival games, face painting, balloon animals, a magic show and, of course, antique fire truck rides. The MPRB Pop Up Park will also be on site with an inflatable soccer field and other lawn games. We will be selling an $8 wristband for unlimited games and inflatables.
NEW for the games: Instead of small candy prizes, play 6 games and win a cookie or scoop of ice cream!
For the Adults: Back by popular demand – Raffle Prize Drawings! $2 will buy you a chance to win a prize from local businesses. We’ll also have community information tables, local businesses and a great evening hanging out with your neighbors. And the popular Tiny Solar House will be back demonstrating the power of the sun.
We’re still looking for volunteers to help make this a great evening. We’d love your help with set-up, tickets, food, etc. Please see on our online volunteer sign-up sheet. Each volunteer will get four tickets to use anywhere at the festival.
The festival is sponsored by Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association in partnership with Lynnhurst Park. Additional sponsorship provided by Southwest Business Association, Sport Clips, Mathnasium and Elevation Chiropractic. It is a zero-waste event and all vendors will be featuring compostable supplies.
