Has the news been getting you down lately? Political debates that spin off into mud slinging? Natural disasters? Violence? Political unrest? This stuff happens day in and day out and the fine folks in broadcast journalism make sure we hear about it.
How about a nice, warm and fuzzy piece of news for a change? Join Rotary Clubs & Global Athlete Village in supporting World Peace and Prayer Day. They are organizing the World’s Largest Hug on the Mendota Bridge near Fort Snelling on Sunday June 19th, which is also Fathers’ Day. Make it a father-daughter/son event and bring along the family, as this is an all-ages event.
The World’s Largest Hug is a fun and heart-warming way to promote peace and healing between cultures while experiencing a bit of culture yourself. Meet people from other cultures while taking part in all of the activities and festivities.
Afterwards participate in a traditional friendship dance called the round dance, listening to live music or watching the Dakota 38 and Dakota Creation story movie at the Boy Scout Base Camp building (various times starting at 4:30 PM).
Did we mention this is an attempt at a new world record? Yep. Take part in something that may end up in the Guiness Book of World Records.
Make history and feel good doing it. Head out to the Mendota Bridge this Sunday afternoon. Things get going around 2pm. This is a free all ages event.
