Hello February! Here are 9 Fantastic Twin Cities Events to Celebrate
Winter is a lingering, quiet season, when nature whispers through softly falling snow.
It’s February, the last complete, official month of winter and here in the Twin Cities February begins auspiciously with a little snow fall. February 2, is Ground Hog Day, but shadow or no shadow here in Minnesota we know there is at least 6 more weeks of winter! It’s the month we celebrate Valentine’s Day, and Presidents Day. It’s also American Health Month and Chocolate Lovers Month!
