It's looking like a nice weekend ahead in the Twin Cities, so we've got another guide on how take advantage of the weekend.

  • And per usual, we're kicking it off with something ... odd.

πŸ‘£ The annual Bigfoot Days celebration in Remer β€” a northern Minnesota town of 370 people that claims to be the home of Bigfoot β€” has everything this weekend: Bigfoot BBQ competition, Bigfoot Bingo, Bigfoot meat raffle and a Bigfoot calling contest. No guarantee Sasquatch himself will stop by.

πŸ“š The Twin Cities Antiquarian Book Fair on Saturday is the place to be for rare book-lovers, with 40 indie booksellers from across the Midwest showcasing and selling ephemera from the 1500s to the 2000s.

πŸ‘• Update your style with old-school finds at the Twin Cities Vintage Fest on Saturday. They'll have men's and women's clothing, memorabilia, video games and more at Familia Skatepark in Minneapolis.

🍻 The St. Paul Summer Beer Fest brings 70+ breweries to the State Fairgrounds for just a few hours on Saturday. Enjoy live music and unlimited samples.

πŸ— Try dozens of food trucks this Sunday at the North Loop Food Truck Fair, held at the future site of the new North Loop Park on N. 3rd Street.
