Target Center Parking could be tricky when Target Center Events Calendar collides with Twins Target Field Schedule

Parking Near the Target Center could get tight like this during Target Center and Target Field events It may seem like Minneapolis is a big city, with plenty of street parking, surface lots, and parking ramps... However, in the warehouse district where both the Target Center and Target Field are located parking near either venue can become tricky. Parking near the Target Center and Target Field when there is an event at both may prove to be impossible.

The first test of this double booking will happen on June 29th when Justin Beiber is at the Target Center and the Minnesota Twins have a home game at Target Field. With events at both the Target Center and Target Field parking in downtown Minneapolis on 6/29 may turn out to be just as hard as getting Bieber Tickets was. Plan early and plan to walk if you have Target Center or Target Field Tickets on that night!

Minnesota Lynx home opener ends in a disappointment but fans are looking forward to 2010 Lynx Season with Lindsey Whalen

Minnesota Lynx play home games at Target Center
Sunday night the Minnesota Lynx played their first home game of the 2010 Lynx season. Fan support for the Lynx and their new hometown star Lindsey Whalen was at an all time high as almost 10,000 fans showed up to watch the Lynx kick off their season.

The Minnesota Lynx hung tight and at times fans were confident that they would pull out a win, but at the end of the night the WNBA Minnesota Lynx walked away with a 87-76 loss. However, fan spirit in the Target Center was reflective of a win. Local fans have been waiting for Lindsey Whalen to come back to Minnesota since she graduated from the University of Minnesota where she was a star on the Golden Gophers Basketball Team.

A Minnesota Lynx representative told reporters he felt that fan support wouldn’t wane even if the Lynx weren’t winning right after the bat and he's probably right. Minnesotans are looking for a reason to be exctied about basketball at the Target Center and Whalen and the WNBA Lynx may be the answer.
