A non-stop marathon of free entertainment called “spark24” will kick off at 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 30, 2008 and will continue until 5 p.m. on Sunday, August 31 (the days just preceding the start of the Republican National Convention).
Peavey Plaza and Orchestra Hall on Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis will be filled with theater, music and dance performances. Plus, over 60 venues, ranging from restaurants and bars to hotels and retail stores, will also feature live entertainment during the 24-hour period. The festivities, offered free to both visitors and local residents, offers something perfect for adults and families.
The IDS center will be reserved during the entire event for visiting media and credentialed VIPs. Globe University is hosting a media center in the IDS Center to facilitate communication for members of the press.
