May the 4th Be With Your - Mankato, MN

Saturday is forecast to be the perfect day to get outside!

Yes, I’m a true Minnesotan — I talk weather, make a mean hot dish, and hang on long goodbyes. I know I am not alone in the occasional complaint about the lack of heat and sun. I’m seriously proud of all us diehards that bundle up just to get outdoors.

The Hub Season Opener was awesome with a great turnout. I ate from every food truck there! So good!

The Hub fun isn’t over yet because this Saturday marks May the 4th Be With You — a team effort with the Old Town business, The Dork Den, for a Star Wars celebration! Dress up as your favorite Star Wars character as there is a free costume contest with prizes. Not to mention the yummy food provided by food trucks: Lep’s Take Me Out and Eatz n Treatz. The event runs from 11 am to 2 pm.

Also happening this weekend, a Spring Ingathering at Sun Moon Yoga running from Friday, May 3rd until Sunday, May 5th. Check out their entire weekend info here. If you’re a member, bring a guest who is new to Sun Moon for free! There are a variety of events like hip-hop yoga and Mandela painting just for examples!

Musically speaking, Good Night Gold Dust is at the What’s Up on Friday night, as well as The Old Guy & the Kid at the Wine Cafe.

Hungry for some art? Palatable Creations: A Food Inspired Juried Art Show is going on at Twin Rivers on Friday. You can also Kick It with Klitzke, an art show with Jessi Klitze Ire at the Coffee Hag.

Finally, a few things to keep on your radar. Taco Tuesdays at the Hub begins next week, Open Mic at the Coffee Hag next Friday, and MR DR with Stacy K and Andria Lyn Duo will be at The Grand Center for Arts & Culture in New Ulm on May 11th!
