Lake Monster in Minnesota
Minneapolis residents know it’s summer when there’s a monster in the lake.
Yesterday, it arrived.

Minne, the 13-foot-tall fiberglass sculpture/dinosaur surfaced in Wirth Lake, near Hwy 55 and Theodore Wirth Parkway.
The creature has been making appearances in Minneapolis lakes since 2009, as part of a public art project by the Minneapolis Parks Foundation.
Minne’s original name, chosen by her creator, Minneapolis artist Cameron Gainer, was the unpronounceable __].
Part of the monster’s charm is her unpredictable wanderlust. One day she might be in Lake Harriet. The next, she might be lounging in Lake of the Isles.
But this season, Minne is settling down. She’ll be at Wirth Lake all summer long. That’s bad news for monster hunters, but good news for Wirth Lake Beach, which was renovated after last year’s tornado in north Minneapolis.
