Third Avenue Bridge
One of the biggest celebrations is going out with a bang. The Minneapolis Aquatennial highlights everything we love about Minnesota summers: the sunshine, the lakes and being outside. The festival closed late Saturday with one of the largest fireworks displays in the country. The Target Fireworks show is annual tradition, lighting up the late July sky above the Mississippi. Doug Taylor is president of Zambelli Fireworks Internationale.
Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak announced a plan to rename the Third Avenue Bridge over Interstate 94 after former city mayor Sharon Sayles Belton.
