This past Friday was the #Minnstameets_Oval. An event put on by Minnstameets and Roseville Visitors Association at the Roseville Skating Center that is connected to the Guidant John Rose MN OVAL. It included a viewing of the state’s largest yarnbomb #KnitTheOVAL, ‪#‎OVALumination by the amazing Knitteapolis, a chance to win Minneapolis / St. Paul hats from MSP Clothing and also several gift cards from Rosedale Shopping Center . We drank hot cocoa and feasted on holiday cookies from the Minnesota Lottery  all while wearing Christmas sweaters and scratching holiday-themed lottery tickets. Minnstameets always knows how to throw a party. Since I was there, braving the cold (see my face, that’s my ‘I’m freezing my lips off’ face), I spent my time watching everyone skate and adding the OVAL to the #mnbucketlist. It’s actually pretty interesting. It’s 110k sq feet of refrigerated ice. Used for hockey, bandy, figure skating, speed skating, in-line skating and recreational skating, the OVAL is at home in the Roseville Skating Center. Built in 1993, they see national and international speed skating competitions and get really involved in the local community. If you haven’t been, I suggested checking it out this winter.
