MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It started in 1995 as a fundraiser to help pay for the structural restoration of the Basilica of Saint Mary.
And while some money still goes towards that, the Basilica Block Party has become so much more.
Fun, food and live entertainment will fill the streets of downtown Minneapolis Saturday and Sunday.
There are three stages and the concerts go until 10:30 p.m. each night.
Tickets are $60 at the door for adult, kids 6 and over get in for $20 and those 5 and under get in for free.
The first act at the block party Saturday night is Aero Flynn, who will take the stage after 5 p.m.
