It's not just all fireworks, there's plenty more happening in the Twin Cities this weekend. Here's your guide:

πŸŽ‰πŸ™ Downtown Welcome Back Weekend block parties near Mears Park in St. Paul will have Fourth of July fireworks, but also Saints games, live music and food trucks. Friday-Sunday.

πŸ€ΈπŸ… Celebrate Olympic gymnast and St. Paulite Suni Lee with her family on Saturday as she prepares to fly to Tokyo and compete for the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team.

🎷🎭 The long-awaited production of "The Music Man" finally reopens Friday on the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre Main Stage after a 16-month hiatus.

πŸš«πŸ‘– The 15th annual Freedom from Pants Ride meets on the Fourth of July for "the most fun you can have on a bike, lots of friends and lots of skin." Hundreds of near-naked cyclists are barred from body-shaming, littering or setting off fireworks. (Note: This is different from last week's topless bike ride.)

Reminder: We want your events! Email us at [email protected] and we might feature them on Fridays.
