One of our favorite events when our girls were younger was the annual Rock the Cradle event. Rock the Cradle is an event for kids and their grownups to explore music, art and culture. The event is sponsored by the Current radio station, and geared for kids 8 and under. A completely free event that takes place throughout MIA and the adjoining Minneapolis Children’s Theatre.
The fun day you should add to your calendar is March 8th. **Many of the previous events took place in February so we wanted to let you know about it now so you don’t miss out.
