The Greater Downtown Council’s annual Sidewalk Days festival begins today and runs through Friday. This is downtown Duluth’s biggest summer shopping festival – and it includes great food! Superior Street is closed to traffic from Lake Avenue to 5th Avenue West and local shops and food vendors bring their goods to the street. Daily activities start at 9am and the 2019 Kolar Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac Classic Car Show is TONIGHT, beginning at 4:30pm. Street dances are Friday and Saturday night. Get all the details, here:
This Friday kicks off a favorite Greater Downtown Council summer tradition – Movies in the Park! Free movies on the big screen at Leif Erikson Park play every Friday through August 30. The first movie is How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, beginning at 9:05pm. Bring friends and a lawn chair! See the schedule.
