New Summer Series at the Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam: Sunset on the Lock

The National Park Service, Mississippi Park Connection and Friends of the Lock and Dam would like you know about a new summer series at the Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam: Sunset on the Lock, the only chance to experience the best of Minnesota summer nights in one of the most picturesque locations in the Twin Cities, the Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam. Get close to the falls and the Mississippi River. Stroll along the lock wall with panoramic views of the river and surrounding area, with a classic Minneapolis sunset as the backdrop.

The first Sunset on the Lock is scheduled for Friday, June 28, 5 PM – 9 PM at the Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam 1 Portland Avenue. (The lock will also be open for extended evening hours on Saturday, June 29 from 5 PM to 9 PM, with special photography programming.)

The event is free and open for all to enjoy. Perfect for a unique date idea, night out on the town with friends, family summer gathering, pit stop on your way to a show or dinner, or as part of your evening stroll along the river.

Future Sunset on the Lock dates include July 26 & 27 and August 30 & 31.  View the full list of events from the Mississippi Park Connection:
