River City Revue–All You Want to Know about the Mississippi and then Some

June 24, 2014Patrick NunnallyEvents, Former Featured PostsComments Off on River City Revue–All You Want to Know about the Mississippi and then Some

RiverCityRevue_Banner-2014The Mississippi River is in the news a lot these days, with the current and predicted flooding throughout the Twin Cities area.  If you want to learn more, and from an offbeat angle, I would suggest exploring the upcoming River City Revue series.

The series starts this Friday evening, with “Working River Walking Tours” at 7:00.  We won’t be as close to the river as we’d like, because of the floods, but will start from the Science Museum of Minnesota and work from there.  Gotta adjust when the river acts like a river, right?

Further events in the series take place between now and mid-September.  Programs are planned on purity, filth, fishing (seems like that could be both purity and filth), and exploring the downstream town of Hastings.  More information, and ticket ordering, at the event’s primary sponsor, the Mississippi River Fund.

River City Revue is a coordinated effort of the Fund, the National Park Service, Works Progress studio, and artist Andy Sturdevant.
