Uptown and Powderhorn art fairs

Slide on some sandals and hit the pavement for two art fairs in the Twin Cities this weekend. The Uptown Art Fair runs Friday-Sunday and the Powderhorn Art Fair happens Saturday-Sunday. Now in its 54th year, Uptown boasts work by more than 350 artists working across media, as well as tons of food options, lots of musical entertainment and a culinary art competition. The Powderhorn Art Fair is set in the neighborhood's city park, with vendors setting up shop around the lake. Combine an art-viewing experience with a calming lake walk, and make it the most pleasant summer weekend ever. (uptownartfair.com and powderhornartfair.com)
