From Irish-inspired events to celebrations of spring, there’s a lot going on Around Town.

Spring Carnival and Slush Cup

Giants Ridge

Saturday is the Spring Carnival and Slush Cup at Giants Ridge in Biwabik. There’s a costume contest, live DJ, and those brave enough can try to make it down the hill and across the pond in the favorite Slush Cup. There’s a retro theme this year, so break out your ’80s and ’90s gear and head to the Ridge.

Shamrock’n Brunch

United Way of 1000 Lakes

On another part of the Range, enjoy a Shamrock’n Brunch. It goes from 10 a.m. – noon Saturday at the Grand Rapids Brewing Co. There will be music, an Irish-inspired brunch buffet, and a raffle. It benefits the United Way of 1000 Lakes. It costs $25 for adults and $10 for kids.

Motorhead Madness

Motorhead Madness

And in Duluth, it’s Motorhead Madness. This event runs both Saturday and Sunday at the DECC. Four arenas will be filled with 150 one-of-a-kind street rods, trucks, antique autos, and more. Plus, there are vendors, car designers, and club exhibits. Admission is $16 for adults and $6 for kids.
