Sunset on the Lock is the only chance to experience the best of Minnesota summer nights in one of the most picturesque locations in the Twin Cities, the Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam.

Join us on June 28 for the lock’s extended evening hours to get close to the falls and the Mississippi River. Stroll along the lock wall with panoramic views of the Mississippi River and surrounding area, with a classic Minneapolis sunset as the backdrop to your life.

The event is free and open for all to enjoy. Perfect for a unique date idea, night out on the town with friends, family summer gathering, pit stop on your way to a show or dinner, or as part of your evening stroll along the river.

The lock will also be open for extended evening hours on Saturday, June 29 from 5 PM to 9 PM, with special photography programming. Join us!

Brought to you by the National Park Service and Mississippi Park Connection with support from Friends of the Lock and Dam.
