MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s the final weekend of April and spring is finally in bloom. We found reasons to get outside and enjoy it all around the Twin Cities, from a warm-weather race to a spring art crawl. Check out what there is to do if you’re Working for the Weekend.

Art In Bloom

Enter a world of timeless art and fresh flowers during the 35th annual Art in Bloom — a free four-day festival of fresh floral arrangements and the fine art that inspired them. One-hundred-sixty-five floral designs interpret objects from Minneapolis Institute of Art’s collection. Art in Bloom takes place Thursday through Sunday.

After a long winter of hibernation, sign up for the Get In Gear Run! This annual rite of spring consists of a 10K, 5K, and a half-marathon. The race takes place this Saturday at Minnehaha Falls.
