Friday afternoon the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition made the announcement! Franklin Ave. will be filled with food, activities, families, and BIKES again this year on Sunday August 16th!
The Facebook announcement:
“We’re happy to announce that Open Streets Minneapolis is back for 2015, and bigger and better than ever! We are excited to have been invited to hold even more new events, and look forward to working with local residents, community groups, neighborhood groups, and businesses to make sure the events are a huge success!
A big thank you to the Kingfield Neighborhood Association and the Lyndale Neighborhood Association (LNA) for hosting the Nicollet Ave S Open Streets event.
Open Streets Minneapolis is an initiative of the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition supported by the City of Minneapolis, and presented by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota Center for Prevention.
Stay tuned for more details on route specifics coming soon!
Email Ginny at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to help plan Open Streets, Beth at email@example.com if you are interested in volunteering, and Alex at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a business or community group that wants to be on the street or to sponsor the event.”
Rick Musser put the call out on the Seward E-Democracy forum:
“Ben Kreilkamp is a local playwright/director who produced numerous theatrical events for the Seward Theater Project in the years 1995-2004. These included two full-length plays: “Under the Hill”, about the formation of Matthews Park, and “Along the River”, about the history of the neighborhood from geologic time through prehistoric time to the time of the white immigration and present day Seward.
Now he is going to write and produce a new play for the MN Fringe this summer 2015. The Fringe festival performs in the first couple weeks of August.
Ben is even now conducting weekly workshops at Faith Mennonite Church (2720 E. 22nd St.) to train a cast for a new play. The new play is called “By Moonlight” and will treat of the many communities that make up South Minneapolis, our lives, our aspirations, and our dreams as we live and our efforts to lead more free and joyous and peaceful lives.
The play will include stories gathered by the Seward History Project (which also gathered material for the earlier plays). The play will also include a flock of crows, providing the human communities with the supporting id of our dreams.
All adults welcome to the workshops. They should contact Ben at email@example.com for more information.”
