MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to start planning some weekend fun.
There are plenty of great events going on this weekend, from getting outdoors to getting some new ink, that you’ll want to put on your social calendar.
Here are some of the top options for your weekend:
Minnesota Sportsmen’s Show
This weekend the St. Paul Rivercentre will host the 2013 Minnesota Sportsmen’s Show. It’s a fishing, hunting, travel, boat and outdoor education show all in one.
Not interested in buying anything? There will be a variety of seminars by outdoor professionals. Tickets are $9 for adults and 2.50 for kids ages 6 to 12.
Ski, Snowshoe, Geocache at Fort Snelling
Kids and adults new to snow sports can discover snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, geocaching and other winter activities from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Fort Snelling State Park.
Winter Trails Day brought more than 1,000 people to the park last year in an effort to increase participation in outdoor recreation. Throughout the day, experts from national outdoor retail co-op REI, Fort Snelling State Park and local outdoor nonprofit organizations will demonstrate winter activities.
Minneapolis Tattoo Arts Convention
Folks looking to add some ink to their bodies may want to check out the Minneapolis Tattoo Arts Convention at the Hyatt downtown Minneapolis this weekend.
Friday through Sunday, artists from around the country will be in town to showcase their work, chat with potential clients and tattoo skin.
Do you have a piece that you are especially proud of? Each day there will be contests where inked attendees can compete for best piece. Admission is $20 for one day, $40 for the entire weekend. Read more about the convention here.
