Mid Summer Already!
July 22nd, 2008 11:22 PM

Summer is half way over, do you know where all your time went?  If you aren’t ready to start thinking about pumpkin patches, apple orchards, and Christmas shopping, be sure to get out there and enjoy the few months of warmth that we have left!  Below is a list of attractions to help get you out and about:

Music in Mears – an outdoor concert series at, you guessed it, Mears Park in Downtown.  Every Thursday evening starting at 5 features a different artist.  It’s always a great time with great music, food, cool vendors, and beer.  If you bring your kids with, bring along a towel, it’s a guarantee that they’ll be attracted to the creek.  This has been one of our favorite summer events for 3 years in a row.  See you there!

Music at the Minnesota History Museum – Every Tuesday in July and August at 6:30 you can see a different band outdoors at the History Museum. July 29th you’ll hear Red Rock Swing Band, a 17 piece big band.

Outdoor movies at Central Library – Every Friday at Dusk through August 22nd you will see a different film.  July 25th you can see “The Living Daylights”, a 007 movie.  See the complete schedule at

Movies & Music in District Del Sol – This is a great program for the whole family!  Each week features a different culture.  At 6:30 is an activity, 7:30 music begins, and at dusk the movie begins.  July 24th features the African culture with mask making with Stepping Stone Theatre, music by Marimba Africa, and the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy.  For a complete schedule, go to

Toyota Music In The Park – This is an almost nightly event sponsored by Toyota.  There are a lot of concerts happening at the Como Pavilion, but are also at several other parks throughout St. Paul.  There are SO many concerts, you’ll want to check out the website to get all the information.

If that’s not enough, check out some of the other things to in St. Paul in the summer.  Here are some of my favorites:  Como Park, Rollerblading/biking along the Samuel Morgan trail along the Mississippi, outdoor patio hopping at the great new patios (thanks to the smoking ban) at the places along 7th Street by the Xcel, swimming at Highland Pool, etc.  Did I forget something?  Let us know your favorite summertime activities!
