Lyndale Open Streets
On Sunday June 2nd, 2019 Blue Cross Animal Hospital participated in this year’s Lyndale Open Streets! This is an annual open street fair hosted by the city of Minneapolis, put on by various sponsors. During this free event, South Lyndale Avenue is closed off to motor vehicles but remains open to walking, roller skating, bicycling, etc. and the street is lined with vendors and food trucks! There are family-friendly booths with games and activities for all ages.
We always have a blast getting to spend time with current clients and meeting new ones during these events. We hosted a table full of free pet swag, including bandanas, toys, totes, and a variety of different pet treats. We had street chalk, art and crafts, and a water boat game for our younger visitors! This year for our free raffle, we gave away a “glamping” set of collapsible camping chairs with an umbrella accompanied with dog toys and treats as well as a cooler accompanied with cat toys and treats. Both prize winners were also awarded with a gift certificate to Blue Cross Animal Hospital.
We’re so grateful for everyone who took time to stop by and say hello,and to our various sponsors who provided all our prizes, making this year another one for the books!
