Midtown Greenway Coalition, Light Up the Greenway

Midtown Greenway

Light Up the Greenway

Watch history being made as the first annual Greenway Glow lights up the Greenway! Cyclists will compete to see who can come up with the most creative lights and costumes. Watch the Big Glow soon after 9 pm, as cyclists start their route through Northern Spark, with stops at venues such as the Vine Arts Center and Intermedia Arts, as well as visits to art installations and performances along the Greenway.

The Midtown Greenway is a 5.5-mile former railroad corridor in south Minneapolis with bicycling and walking trails. The Midtown Greenway Coalition is a member-based organization of neighborhoods and individuals who love the Midtown Greenway. We’re the people who got the Greenway built by public agencies, and we work to protect and enhance it every day.

It’s free to watch the Greenway Glow. Cyclists will be raising funds for the Midtown Greenway Coalition’s programs and services, like the popular Trail Watch safety patrol, which bikes the Greenway every night to help keep it safe. Other programs include initiatives for more public art and native plants along the Greenway, as well as efforts to keep the corridor clean and the trail free of glass.
