Minneapolis celebrates sister cities

Print

International music and dance,  a festive day on Nicollet Island, ice cream, dignitaries – and new friends from ten Sister Cities!  The Fourth Annual Sister Cities Day is a free family event set for Sunday,  July 17, 1:00-5:00 p.m.

The Minneapolis Sister Cities program began a half century ago with the signing of the first Sister City agreement between Minneapolis and Santiago, Chile.  Since then the family of Sister Cities has grown to include Cuernavaca, Mexico; Eldoret, Kenya; Harbin, China; Ibaraki City, Japan; Kuopio, Finland; Novosibirsk, Russia; Tours, France; and Uppsala, Sweden.  The newest Sister relationship was established in 2010 with Najaf, Iraq.

Twirl the globe, wander through the web, create a fun family (or personal) learning adventure to explore our Sister Cities.  Then hear the music, enjoy the dance and the stories, possibly visit with folks who grew up, studied, or traveled in and know about our Sister Cities around the world.
