Saturday night Minneapolis’s marketing department, Meet Minneapolis, is throwing a party for 2,500 event planners from across the country that will close a portion of West River Road all day Saturday.

The event is happening directly in back of the Mill City Museum and will close West River Road from Portland Avenue to 11th Avenue.

A band is scheduled to play from 7:15 – 8:30 p.m., after that an opera singer will serenade the event planners in the museum’s courtyard. A 300-foot long tent will be placed on the grass next to the Mississippi River for additional entertainment.
