Park B4 Dark returns this summer

The annual Park B4 Dark series returns on the third Thursday of each summer month—June 16, July 21 and Aug. 18—to the Como Avenue retail district in St. Anthony Park.

This is the event’s sixth year and will include sidewalk specials, music, food and fun. Highlights this year include the Bibelot’s 50th anniversary celebration. From 5-8 p.m. each Park B4 Dark night, the store will offer 20 percent off everything in the store. Additionally, everyone who comes into the Como Avenue Bibelot on those evenings will have the opportunity to enter a drawing to receive a $50 Bibelot gift card.

This year also welcomes a number of new businesses in the shopping area and an enhanced KidZone in the Sunrise Bank  parking lot next door, sponsored by the Saint Anthony Park Community Foundation and Sunrise Bank. The Zone will feature a table filled with building links and tubes from CEZ toy company YOXO, Joy of the People’s inflatable soccer field, kids yoga, a craft corner, and Open Eye Figure Theater in August.

More fun will be added added as the events take shape, but you can count on special deals, local musicians and food, as well as the Little Wine Shoppe’s wine-tastings from 4:30-7:30 p.m. at each event. Mark your calendars, bring the kids, have fun and support this unique business district.
