1.) The Duluth Canal Cam Dancers and Marching Band. This is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 29, at 4:30 p.m.
2.) “Ore Boats in Space” cartoon art opening at Duluth Coffee Company’s Roasteria. Poster-size aluminum prints of ore boats in space. Date: Spring, TBA
3.) The Second Annual Duluth Rock-Skipping Contest. Leif Erikson Park beach. Compete for prizes in free event judged by Robot Rickshaw aka Troy Rogers and myself. Date is weather-dependent and will be announced this summer.
4.) Floaty Flotilla I: Outer Harbor. Developed with Robot Rickshaw, the Floaty Flotilla will be a call to all small watercraft to congregate in Duluth’s “outer harbor,” i.e. the triangular space off the Lakewalk between the Vietnam Memorial, the red buoy, and the Icehouse/Uncle Harvey’s Mausoleum. Scuba divers, snorklers, boats, kayaks, canoes, and jetskis are encouraged to attend. Get those wetsuits ready; that area is Duluth’s best diving, with its underwater ruins of Duluth’s industrial past – namely the old breakwater walls, and the Icehouse. The buoy marks the terminus of these submerged constructions. We would like to have impromptu music off a sailboat, with a waterborne crowd like Glensheen gets with their Concerts on the Pier. There is no affiliation, only an independent stab at water-based rock-n-roll in different locations. Date: mid-late summer sometime. Check this space. Water is between 10-30 feet deep here so this is not for casual swimmers or unsupervised children.
4.) Floaty Flotilla II: Sand-Castle Contest. Flotilla encouraged to congregate off Park Point’s rock-n-roll beach, the Church one — you know the one. An offshore music scene supporting a free sand-castle building contest judged by Robot Rickshaw and myself. Date: mid-late summer.
