It’s the end of June and time to start soaking up these warm summer days and all that Mankato has to offer!

Taste of the Makerspace

Get a taste of the Makerspace in Mankato on Friday night from 6-9 pm. All ages welcome! There will be over 10 classes to choose from and your ticket will get you into any of them.

Want to learn how to make your own t-shirt? There’s a screen-printing class. Dying to reenact the scene from the movie Ghost? The pottery class is for you — no guarantee of a potting wheel for two unless you bring someone with you! Considered replying to the graffitied prom question out on the bridge? Well, Aerosol Painting Class is what you need. Make your own jewelry? Take the wire wrapped jewelry class. And there are many, many more options — including Blacksmithing!

Ticket Price: Presale $30.00 adult | $15.00 child (14 under) — Door $35.00 adult | $20.00 Child (14 under)

This is an awesome opportunity if you’ve got any summer doldrums happening. Check the Makerspace Facebook page for more details.

More Fun

The Hub Food Park will be heating up with “Salsa in the Park” from 11-2 pm this Saturday. Lola’s and Evans Eatery are creating special Cuban dishes for this FREE event. Check the event page for more details.

It’s supposed to be a summery weekend, so check out Bent River to get on some water or head over to Nicollet Bike to catch the breeze.

Remember the Farmers Market at The Hub every Thursday from 3:30-6 pm. Check out the daily food specials at The NaKato if you don’t feel like cooking not to mention there’s usually not live music in your kitchen!
