Interested in attending the monthly WPCiA neighborhood meetings but wondering what to do with your kids during meeting time? Bring them along to enjoy the new Kids Corner "hang-out" program, supervised by Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board staff at the rec center during our WPCiA neighborhood meetings. Games, toys, occasional treats, movies and more will be offered! It's free and open to the public. Program begins Tuesday, Sept. 17, and will be available during scheduled WPCiA neighborhood meetings at the rec center on the third Tuesday of the month from 7-9 p.m. (Check here for any last-minute schedule changes.)  Participating children must be toilet-trained.

Windyfest is Coming - June 21!

The annual Windom Park community carnival has been revamped for 2014 into Windyfest, a celebration of summer on Saturday, June 21, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the park (corner of Lowry Avenue and Johnson Street NE).

We're kicking off the official start of summer on Summer Solstice Saturday with great music (Twin Cities Mobile Jazz Project, Rare Medium, and Brian Laidlaw and the Family Trade), great local food (Hazel's, Marino's, Parkway Pizza, Carmel King), the new Bier Garten under the overview of The Mill Northeast with beer from local brewer Indeed Brewing Company, and activities for kids of all ages (dunk tank, mini-golf, inflatable obstacle course and more), plus an arts and crafts show featuring local artisans. We're also featuring community resource tables, so please plan to stop by, meet your neighbors and take in the sights!

Proceeds from this event benefit WPCiA projects as well as Windom Park itself. The event is a partnership of WPCiA and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.

WANT TO GET INVOLVED AS WELL AS SHOW UP AND HAVE FUN? Always dreamed of being a beer meister or mini-golf director? Here's your chance! We need ticket sellers, ticket takers, beer pourers, information table hosts and hostesses, and more. We've made it easy for you to view what's needed and to sign up at:
