Here's what else is on tap this weekend:

🎨 The Stone Arch Bridge Festival returns to the downtown side of the bridge on Saturday and Sunday, with nearly 200 artist booths, food, live music and more. Want a preview? We'll be there Saturday morning sharing highlights on our new Instagram @axiostwincities.

🎷 #WelcomeBackStPL events continue this weekend with haunted walking tours, a jazz and blues concert series and RoseFest 2021, a 90-minute tasting session with eight samples of rose.

🚲 Noteworthy Parking Lots of Minneapolis Bike Tour, hosted by urban geographer Bill Lindeke, returns Saturday after six years for a 5-mile ride to "see how parking lots are fairing in today's modern world."

🚘 "Back to the '50s Weekend" takes over the State Fairgrounds Friday through Sunday with 12,000 street rods, custom and classic cars, all dating from 1964 and earlier.
