Franconia Sculpture Park, Minnesota’s black sheep of a sculpture garden, is worth the drive out any time of year. But add on a pair of wooden snowshoes and a guided tour from the park’s chief curator, and you’ve got an unmissable event. Head east to Shafer, Minnesota, for an afternoon of soft wading through the park’s curious collection and absorb the park’s history, followed by refreshments and cocoa. Sunday, January 12th, 1PM. $10. —Isabelle Wattenberg
