    Intel from another MeetUp group:

    "The Aquatennial fireworks are probably the best fireworks display in Minnesota each year. And the best place to see them is from the grassy area downriver from the 3rd Ave bridge (upriver from the lock). Directions: We will be meeting along the Mississippi on the downtown side, between the 3rd Ave Bridge (also called Central Ave) and the Lock and Dam. Head upriver from the lock or down river from the bridge. It's a narrow strip of land so we should be fairly easy to find. Bring a blanket or a chair and some snacks and bevvies for yourself. Bug spray might be a good idea"

      I was just doing a little more research on how to get to the location. I found that if you take the #3 bus to S 4th street & 4th Ave S then go back 1 block to S 5th Ave & walk towards the river 4 blocks you'll hit W River Parkway. That piece of land is b/w Portland Ave & 3rd Ave S. Which would be b/w the 2 bridges. I'm sure if we find a lot of people walking around there w/blankets seeming like they'll have a picnic then we hit the right place ;)

      BTW, Kate the nearest park I saw on the map was the Mill Ruins Park which is closer to the Stone Arch Bridge.

    Hey guys, Jeff suggested having a picnic - a brilliant idea! I'll bring my bottle of home-made Pinot Noir to share and I've got the tarp! What will you bring to share? Anyone been to this event before or can suggest best location to meet, maybe bike, jog, chill out, hang out and watch the fireworks? 6p still ok, or do you guys want to meet earlier to search for the best spot?

      Hey there - looking forward to seeing you on Saturday. This is my first Mpls fireworks so no recommendations on location. I will bring homemade feta dip and chips or something similar for dipping

    Ok guys, count down 1 day to Fireworks! Can you pls update your rsvp and what you're bringing for the picnic so we know who/what we're expecting? Since no suggestions made to meet any earlier and it's my 1st attendance to this event, we'll connect on cell when I/we can find a good spot when there. I think I have everyone's cell nos. Just in case u don't have mine, it's google cell:[masked]-8868. Hi Jennifer W, sorry to see you change your rsvp. If there's a chance to make it later, just text me for location ok? Hope to see u in our future events soon... especially our TCAS Monthly Potluck on the last Sat of each month - save the date! :)
