Visit St. Paul
The 40th Ryder Cup is one of the biggest events in golf, and it kicks off on Friday at Gleneagles in Edinburgh, Scotland. And Explore Minnesota is making sure our state has a presence there. Bill Von Bank with Explore Minnesota flew across the pond to promote the big tournament that will make its way to Minnesota in 2016.
Hundreds of thousands of people are set to have a grand old time this weekend in St. Paul. The state’s largest one day festival is this Sunday and it’s jam packed with fun for your family on Grand Avenue.
While so many are focused on their basketball brackets, it’s college hockey fans filling both downtown areas Saturday. St. Paul is hosting the Big Ten Conference tournament at the Xcel Energy Center, while Minneapolis has the National Collegiate Hockey Conference tournament at Target Center. Forget March Madness, for these fans it’s all about the ice.
It’s one of the most extreme winter competitions, and it’s back in St. Paul this weekend. Red Bull’s Crashed Ice is now in full swing. Last year’s competition brought 100,000 people to downtown St. Paul. And it has local merchants seeing green, like St. Paul’s Eagle Street Grill.

Three huge events — the return of the Minnesota Wild, the St. Paul Winter Carnival and Red Bull Crashed Ice — will give the city an economic shot in the arm. It’s a boost badly needed after three long months without hockey.
