Getting to Nicollet Mall
Dozens of bus routes serve Nicollet Mall; however, note that buses will be detoured off the mall during the parade. Or take the METRO Blue Line and get off at Nicollet Mall Station.
Getting to Target Center
Hop on a bus from your neighborhood or park for free at Park & Ride lots along the Blue Line and take the train downtown. Target Center is an easy one-block walk from Warehouse District/Hennepin Avenue Station.
If you're coming from the south metro, there's connecting service on the METRO Red Line to the Blue Line at Mall of America Station.
