Most of 2020 we want to forget. But there are some things that happened that have stuck around, and we're cool with it! Like outdoors movies, for example. I like that those have become popular now. And Rochester, Minnesota's downtown 'Sidewalk Sessions' are another product of 2020 that has stuck around.

The Rochester Downtown Alliance announced that 'Sidewalk Sesions' are back again this summer! If you aren't familiar with 'Sidewalk Sessions', they're performances that are put on by musicians every Monday and Friday during the summer. These performances are put on at the Peace Plaza, so if you work downtown it's a great excuse to get out of work for a little bit in the afternoon as the performances start at 12:30 PM and go until 1:15 PM.
