The Minneapolis Polar Plunge will be on Saturday, February 29th, 2020, so this means the annual pre-event fireworks should be the evening of Friday, February 28th at 7pm!
Join me for an Urban Hike around the lake, followed by viewing the fireworks from Thomas Beach. Meet at 5:45 pm at the Thomas Beach parking lot/beach area (this will be near the giant inflatable bear on the lake) to walk clockwise around the lake on the bike path for a total of 3.2 miles. The path is cleared and well lit, and biffy’s are available. The parking lots will be closed due to the event, but there is lots of free street parking on the parkway or neighborhood streets. Dress for the weather, as the wind off the lake can be brisk.
