There’s a million different block parties going on all over Northeast, but here’s a few of the big ones we’re obligated to mention:
Ogle puppies and take a photo with giant kraken tentacles at Psycho Suzi’s Art-Thou-Luau. Saturday, 1:30-midnight. Free.
331 has a crazy, chock full roster of music, inside and outside, all three days. It’s seriously like most of the Twincy’s music scene. Friday, 5-10 PM. Saturday, 12-10 PM. Free.
Sociable Cider hosts possibly the only (formal) dance of the weekend: the St. Paul Ballet performs for cider sippers and shoppers of the Minnesota Mobile Market–a collaboration between Handsome Cycles and Sota Clothing. Saturday, 12-8 PM. Free.
Possibly your best chance at getting a bite of unceasingly popular Hai Hai without a two-month-away rezzie: they’re grilling on their parking lot while a muralist live-paints the patio wall (sloths and lemurs promised!) Saturday, 1-9 PM. Free.
Visit Bauhaus’s Liquid Zoo on Saturday to watch Har Mar Superstar, return on Sunday to play Can Can Wonderland artist-designed mini-golf. Friday, 5-10 PM. Saturday,12-10 PM. Sunday, 12-6 PM. Free.
Not technically art-a-whirl but Lakes and Legends’ Spring Outdoors fits the mold with live music, beer, and vendors galore: albeit of the bike-fixing and water-traversing kind. Saturday, 12-8 PM. Free.
