Coming up in a few weeks is a cool opportunity for anyone who is a Minnesota Vikings fan. You can take a cruise with not one, not two, but three former Minnesota Vikings players on Lake Minnetonka! The three former players are Robert Griffith, Bryant McKinnie, and Byron Chamberlain.

The Vikings Cruise on Lake Minnetonka, as it's called, is happening Friday, June 18th, so it's in just a couple of weeks. The cruise is two hours long, running 6-8 PM. But how do you get on the cruise?

In order to get on the cruise, you just have to buy a ticket! If you buy your ticket before June 11th one ticket is $125. If you buy the ticket after June 11th the tickets are $150. Tickets include free food (there will be drinks available on the boat but it's a cash bar) and you have the option to bring anything you want one or more of the players to sign. Pictures with the players is also allowed on the cruise! It sounds like a really fun time and a cool experience. If you're interested you can get a ticket HERE. There's limited space on the boat which means there's limited tickets too.

So how did all of this come together? This fun cruise on Lake Minnetonka is being put on by Rober Griffth's foundation, Griffith24Seven. His foundation "provides college scholarships to underprivileged high school seniors." It doesn't say this explicitly on the event, from what I can see, but I would think that means some if not all of the ticket proceeds from this event are going towards the foundation.
