We’ll have a DJ spinning tunes with breaks every 30 minutes for a fun adult/kid activity like the Hokey Pokey, a hula hoop contest and a fun run/obstacle course around the park.

Come hungry and enjoy some great food available for purchase from Red Wagon Pizza, The Rusty Taco and Fair Faves (corn dogs, mini-donuts, etc.) We’re also working on a cold sweet treats option.

While you’re there, let the kids play some carnival games, bounce in the inflatables and play with the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Minneapolis Parks Naturalist. Activities are free, but a $5 donation per child would be welcomed.

For the adults we’ll have a classic car show, informational tables from local businesses and educational tables from non-profit partners.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Kenny Ice Cream Social CANCELED for Today, June 20

We have made the difficult decision to CANCEL the Kenny Ice Cream Social tonight. The weather forecast is calling for rain and possible thunderstorms all afternoon and through the dinner hour. Kenny Park only has a small building and cannot provide shelter in case of emergency. Your safety is important to us and we just can’t take a chance that we would put anyone in a dangerous situation. We had to make this call early enough in the day to be able to give adequate notice to the Crosstown Community Band, Sebastian Joe’s, volunteers, etc. We will look at the calendar and try to reschedule this awesome event. Sorry for any inconvenience – we are sad to have to cancel.
