Things to do in the Twin Cities this February

Custom Home Open Houses in the Twin Cities this weekend

It’s February and that means you’re probably sick of winter by now. If you’re like most Minnesotans you’ve run out of things to do in the Twin Cities and are spending your weekend driving the kids back and forth from hockey practice or dance lessons. February gets a bad rap but it shouldn’t. Especially in Minnesota. In Minnesota February is all about the home. The Parade of Homes(sm) and Remodelers Showcase begins, the Minneapolis Home and Garden Show is going on and there’s even a Women’s Expo taking place. All are great excuses to get out of the house and start planning your spring and summer home improvement projects. If you’d rather not start another home project but still want to do some improving then consider the Polar Plunge or the Valentine’s Day TC 5k.

In addition to these fun and educational events Custom One Homes is having a special one time only event to tour a custom home before the new homeowners move in.

Autumn Ridge Open House
When: Saturday and Sunday, February 7th and 8th, 1pm – 4pm

Maple Grove Polar Plunge
When: February 7th, 1pm
Where: Fish Lake Regional Park

The Polar Plunge isn’t for everyone, only a special group of people can muster the courage to jump through a hole in the ice and plunge into a frozen Minnesota lake, but, if you have what it takes the Maple Grove Polar Plunge is a great event and it benefits the Minnesota Special Olympics – a great cause if there was one. Participants must raise $75  to take part. Click here to learn more and register today!
