I have gotten really excited lately knowing that the Super Bowl is just a matter of weeks away. Normally it isn’t a huge deal to me, but now that it’s in Minnesota this year (or Minneapolis, more specifically at U.S. Bank Stadium) I have gotten more eager to see how it plays out! I’ve heard of a lot of events and activities that are going to be taking place and I thought it would be a great resource for us Minnesotans to have them all in one place. I mean how many times do you get the chance to have the Super Bowl held right here in your hometown?!
If you haven’t followed the Super Bowl details closely, the game is on February 4th, 2018 at 5:30PM CST.
Fun facts: Justin Timberlake will be performing at halftime, and Pink will be singing the national anthem.
If you need to go to that area for some reason other than to take part in the Super Bowl festivities that day, I’d highly advise against it. You are going to get nowhere, and likely spend all day doing it.
