A year or so ago I was allowed access to the new Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw while it was on dry dock at Fraser Shipyards. At the time it was recieving an upgrade to the propellar system. They were happy to give me access and this tour gets alot of hits from all over the country. As crew members get notified they will be transfered to this vessel a lot of them check out the tour to see thier new home for the next few years. Take a tour yourself!
My wife and I had an opportunity to attend the Tribute Fest this year. It is a concert to raise money for homeless Minnesota Veterans. The organization it helps is called MACV. The Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans. www.mav-v.org It is the first year it was held at Bayfront Park. We had alot of fun attending, got very sunburnt and gained a few pounds eating vendor food. This is the end result. A handful of 360 images, 20 or so still photos and a 7 min video clip of the Artists. Please concider attending this event next year as all the procedes go to a great cause. It’s because of the veterans we live in the great country we have.
Even been inside the Old Central Clock tower? How about the I-35 graffiti tunnels? Tall Ships, Bentleyville and the Blues Fest are all available for an online virtual tour. Post your favorite view to Facebook or other social media platforms you can even send the link to a friend via email.
