With temperatures finally above zero, get out and enjoy one of these local live, in-person events this weekend!

Last week Governor Walz again loosened COVID-19 restrictions around Minnesota as hospitalizations and the positivity rate continue to decline. His new executive order allowed for the maximum capacity of indoor entertainment venues, gyms and pools to increase from 150 to 250 people; private events and celebrations may now have a maximum of 50 people; and all bars and restaurants may have a maximum of 250 people indoors and can now stay opened until 11:00 p.m.

With that in mind, here are some live events happening around Central Minnesota this weekend worth getting out of the house for:
