One of the Most Magnificent Firework Shows Is Headed To Minneapolis
The Target Firework Show is Top Five of its Kind in the Country
I promise you this show is definitely worth your time! This show is one of the top five annual firework displays in the United States! Doesn't that explain enough?
The Target Fireworks "are a fully choreographed pyro-musical that times each firework pop to the beat of its soundtrack all the way down to 1/100th of a second."
A lot of work and dedication goes into this experience. In fact, the choreography process takes anywhere from 2 to 4 hours of design time per minute of the total show time. That's an incredible amount of planning.
According to Aquatennial, the best place to watch the show is on the west side of the Mississippi River, along West River Parkway near Portland Avenue.
Before the show at 10 pm, you can enjoy live music, food trucks, and more. The City of Lakes Market (equipped with 20+ local markets and small businesses) will be located between the Guthrie Theater and Mill City Museum.
Live music will occur near Mill Ruins Park.
