Silver Stars – First Avenue Star Wall

Scavenger hunters took a trip to the Star Wall, which is located outside of First Avenue. First Avenue is one of the longest-running theatres in the United States and is dedicated to supporting local artists, promoting diversity, and providing fun music and other live events for all. The Star Wall features hundreds of silver stars that feature the names of famous musicians and artists. The wall also features one gold star that is dedicated to Prince, who is from Minneapolis and obviously deserving of this honor. It is somewhat of a mystery when it comes to how the theatre chooses who gets a star. However, the rumor is that in order to get a star, you must sell out the main room of the theatre or be someone who has had a major impact on the local community. The photo challenge at this stop was for participants to take a photo with a star of their favorite celebrity. This group chose Mason Jennings, who is a local folk-pop singer and songwriter.
