MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — We are working for the weekend. It is Mother’s Day weekend and there are a lot of fun activities to do with mom!
But we begin with a party even the dads would enjoy.
It’s a beer, bikes and a block party this Saturday at Fulton Brewery. The 2nd annual Fulton Gran Fondo block party, bike ride, and beer release goes down outside the new northeast Minneapolis location. The block party is free. But the 100-mile bike ride beforehand is $50 and that gets you a t-shirt, pint glass, and free first beer.
Have a meal and make some memories with mom at the Mall of America. This Saturday at the American Girl Bistro enjoy a meal, play dice games and make a colorful keepsake picture frame craft together. Tickets are $38 per person.
Also at the Mall, experience Lindt Lindor Truffle Sampling. On Saturday from 12 pm -8 pm in the Southeast Court chocolate lovers can get a free truffle and exclusive offers. Take a picture, post it to social media using #LINDORmelt to win a LINDOR truffles bag.
Take in a free concert with mom at the Saint Paul Civic Symphony’s annual Mother’s Day Concert. Enjoy classics in Landmark Center’s majestic Cortile atrium. Arrive early Sunday – seats fill up quickly for the free 1 p.m. performance.
Run Like A Mother is debuting in the Twin Cities this year! The Run Like A Mother program strives to inspire women to incorporate running at every stage of a woman’s life. The course around Lake Phalen will be family friendly (including strollers) and designed for first-time runners as well as experienced 5K racers. Kids Run begins at 8:30 am on Saturday. The 5K begins at 9.
Another great thing to do with mom, go to the zoo! Moms get into the Minnesota Zoo for free both Saturday and Sunday.
