The seventh annual 10,000 Lakes Concours d’Elegance happens this July at the Excelsior Commons. The lakeside park will play host to one-of-a-kind historic cars (including many of their owners dressed in period garb and ready to chat with show-goers), boats and motorcycles. Guests can also shop at vendor booths, listen to live music, munch on treats from food stalls, and visit the kids’ zone. (And no need to worry about parking—grab a shuttle from Excelsior Elementary School or Minnetonka High School.)
With a variety of literature ranging from fiction to nonfiction, children and adults alike can get their hands on a diverse selection of books at a fair price. Sponsored by Friends of the Maple Grove Library, all proceeds will be donated to the library collection and its programs.
