St. Louis Park Parktacular

Walk with Senate District 46 and our representatives Senator Latz, Representative Youakim and Representative Flanagan in the St. Louis Park Parktacular Parade on Saturday, June 17.  All are welcome!

We will begin lining up at 11:30am in the Minikahda Vista neighborhood.   We will be lined up in positions 44, 45 and 46 with Senator Latz, Representative Flanagan and Representative Youakim.  This is somewhere around Huntington Ave S and 38th St.  The parade begins at noon.

Parking can be difficult so plan to walk a couple block to our parade position.  Also the neighborhood will be very busy so plan on traffic.  The parade ends at the St. Louis Park Rec Center so many people park near the end and walk to the parade position.

If you have any other question, call John Martin (952-451-1450) or Claire Lukens (952-412-8806).

After the parade, Senate District 46 will have a booth at Wolfe Park.
