When our girls were young, the Centennial Lakes area in Edina was a favorite spot in the summer. It’s a great place to walk, have some lunch and enjoy some music. There was usually some sort of event happening during the day and if not it was still fun to sit near the water.
We just learned events will be starting back up at Centennial Lakes, not with the frequency as they typically would, however at this point anything is better than nothing for the summer of 2020.
Sidewalk Performances at Centennial Lakes begin Thursday, July 16th and will continue into the end of August. The events take place each Monday and Thursday evening beginning at 7 pm near the south end of the Hughes Pavilion.
The great line up of music will include the following:
- July 20: Sidewalk Café Duo
