Mississippi River Clean Up

Friday, April 22nd, 2022 from 4:00-6:00pm

Hidden Falls Regional Park

The HIVE, St. Paul Pet, and Bob Mitchell's Fly Shop have teamed up as sponsors of a spring clean up event to help protect one of the greatest resources in our area, the Mississippi River.

Come down to Hidden Falls Regional Park for a family and dog friendly event! Participants will fill garbage bags with as much debris as possible. Then, stick around for acoustic tunes by local musicians, Mike Munson and Mikkel Beckmen, share a drink with friends, and eat delicious food!

West Indies Soul Food Truck has lined up a mouth-watering Caribbean menu of Jamaican patties and jerk chicken. While supplies last!

We're hiring our friend, Bethany Becnel, a local facepainting artist to come and make us all look glamorous! Check out these amazing faces! Visit her instagram page to see more fun creations.

  • Wear weather appropriate clothing--This event is rain or shine!

  • Make sure you'll be okay if your clothes or shoes get dirty.
