Tuesdays Around Town - The Landing, Shakopee, MN

Last Saturday, I took a little drive to Shakopee, MN to see some fine art at The Landing. It's a history village set along the Minnesota River, and there is usually admission charged to cover the cost of keeping up the buildings. Costumed volunteers lead tours. 
 
 
Because of the fine arts fair, admission was free last weekend, but I had gotten there only an hour before closing, so I skipped the tours and concentrated on the booths and the outsides of the buildings.

 
The top two photos show the scenic overlook above the Minnesota River. With all our heavy rain last month, the river is still quite high, but I saw no evidence that any flooding had occurred here as it had just down the highway at Valley Fair.
