ALBERT LEA, MN– Construction projects will not interfere with events going on this weekend in one southern Minnesota town.
“Downtown Saturdays” will begin tomorrow in downtown Albert Lea.
The event is being put on by the Albert Lea-Freeborn County Chamber of Commerce.
It’s a way to bring people downtown and get them to shop, despite the Broadway streetscape and Reconstruction project being underway.
And they are also offering a tasty incentive for shoppers.
“We’re going to be serving 100 hot dogs and bottled water to the first 100 people who come downtown and shop in downtown on a Saturday despite the construction being there,” Executive Director Randy Kehr said.
The chamber staff will be at the Albert Lea Farmers Market location this weekend at 11 a.m.
Downtown Saturdays will continue each Saturday until August 24th, except for July 6th.
