One of our favorite traditions has been attending the CSE Winter Light Show . We are very excited that the show is back on for 2021! The amazing show and display is put on by the College of Science and Engineering, at the University of Minnesota Minneapolis Campus. The knowledge and talent of the students is none other than amazing to watch and listen to.
The last time we went, we invited friends who had recently moved here from Arizona and I feel it is VERY important to note and remind that this show is completely outdoors.
The show lasts about 20 minutes. They will be hosting shows December 9-11. More information can be found below or on the website page here.

The CSE Winter Light Show is a student-designed 3D outdoor experience featuring more than 250,000 LED lights set to music. All of the light features and much of the music is designed, sequenced, composed, and performed by University of Minnesota students. Now in its TENTH year, the CSE Winter Light Show has become an annual campus tradition.
There will be shows at 5:30, 6, and 6:30 p.m. and each show will last about 20 minutes. All shows are free and open to the public.
The show is presented by the Tesla Works student group and sponsored by the College of Science and Engineering.
