St. Olaf is coming back from it, Carleton is there, and the Northfield Public Schools are heading out on it. It’s Spring Break in Music City, Minnesota. Technically, today, March 20th, is the first day of Spring, so it makes sense, at least to a snowbird. Anyone who has the means and the inclination is probably looking to join Annette on a beach someplace well south of Albert Lea. But for the rest of us, there’s always live music in downtown Northfield.
