Photos: Northern Spark lights up Minneapolis


Thousands of people gathered in the Minneapolis Mill District until dawn Sunday morning for the annual Northern Sparks festival. This year's theme was Climate Chaos | Climate Rising – it explored how "artists grapple with and envision new approaches to the global climate challenges we face."

The event included food, live entertainment, various art installations and workshops by climate scientists, researchers, visionary engineers, political activists, and artists, according to a press release.

Next year's festival will have a similar theme, but follow the Green Line's path from Minneapolis to Saint Paul.
