July 4th at Lake Harriet with Caribbean Music!

A nice mixture of cultural celebrations! Bring a blanket and food to share (around 6:30 pm), let's dance to some cool music (around 7:30pm), and stay by the lake to watch the fireworks at a distance ('til you're happy).

I would love a co-host, just to share the fun. I will have a Meetup sign on the grass bank directly opposite the bandshell.

This is a family-friendly event.  The goal is for all of us to create a very safe social space for everybody.  I look forward to each of us taking responsibility for the collective good spirits.

PS: Fingers crossed for good weather, hope music will go on as announced by the Twin Cities, and fireworks are not at the bandshell itself.

    Wendy, I'm just trying to organize the part at the bandshell. I'll leave others to enquire where the fireworks might be (check with the Twin Cities municipal or neighborhood authorities) and perhaps people can choose to travel to watch them. They can be seen at a distance from Lake Harriet itself.

    Hello, I am very very new to Meetup and this group. I'm going out on a limb and trying something very different. I am not sure what to expect but I am looking forward to meeting you all. Thanks in advance for welcoming me to the meetup experience!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
