Sure, pound for pound, Northfield probably has more art than any other town in the country. However, what is more “Minnesotan” than eating ice cream…outside…when it’s 20 below zero? So, this event is my “pick of the week”.
Although it sounds a bit Nordic Pagan (“a communal sing designed to force the weather gods to release us from their cold winter grip”), I’m sure that Jews, Christians, Muslims, and even Atheists are all invited: the Northfield Historical Society’s Winter Scream, Saturday in Bridge Square. So come on down(town) and sing (and eat) the winter away!
