Saturday, June 15th, Minneapolis-The Stone Arch Bridge Art Festival 2013 started off with a large turnout of fest-goers under mostly pleasant skies. People flooded St. Anthony Main to take in the sights and sounds of the fest; Classic car displays, food-stands, music, and of course arts and crafts. Local musicians played on stages and in the streets as pedestrians mused about. The Stone Arch Bridge was packed with people walking, biking, and taking in the majestic beauty of St. Anthony Falls and the Mississippi River below.
Dogs, renaissance characters, artists, sightseers, bicyclists, and musicians, were ubiquitous throughout the crowd. Adults and children alike took in the riverfront streets, historical redbrick roads, games, music, and art.
There remains something for all at the art fest.
The food-stands are setup, offering interesting and exotic selections, as well as fest favorites for all your foodie needs. Many fest-goers carried cameras, snacks and crafts, which, the latter, were on display and for sale. The classic car show brought an impressive lot of machinery to the forefront-rare, tricked-out, and American Classic Customs shined for onlookers present.
The Stone Arch Bridge Art Festival runs today and tomorrow throughout Father Hennepin Park and Historic St. Anthony Main, there is a vast array of art and culture to take in. Make the time this weekend to see what the Stone Arch Art Festival has to offer.
