Bonfires and moonlight swims. Cocktails on a patio and movies in the park. It’s summer in Minnesota and everyone is looking for ways to be outside for as long as possible every evening. One fun way to soak up every minute of the season is to kick up your heels at a good ol’ fashioned street dance. And there are plenty scheduled around the state. Some are part of days-long local festivities, some are fundraisers for fire departments, others are just for the heck of it. But all of them promise to be a blast. Check out this list of street dances around Minnesota and you’re sure to find one more way to take advantage of every second summer has to offer.
