Awesome thing number TWO!

The Minneapolis sculpture garden is just a quick walk through scenic Loring park from our hotel; and has a multitude of awesome sculptures for you to take unique fursuit/normal pictures!

The garden is a part of the Walker Art Center, a great place for anyone interested in the art scene in Minneapolis. (We are famous for it!)
What might tickle the fancy of both you art lovers and fursuiters is the Mini Golf!

In an event that will be running till September 7th, several artists have designed unique Mini-golf courses for you to play in! One of the most interesting is “Be A Sculpture!” where players act as the obstacles in the course. Perfect for fursuiters!

Awesome thing number THREE!

The scenic Loring GreenWay extends past our hotel at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis and connects up with Loring park and our previous awesome thing The Minneapolis Sculpture garden.

With wide brick pedestrian walkways and structures perfect for posing on and around, we can’t wait to see your fursuit shenanigans and pictures!
