A one-mile route along the river between Red Wing's West End District and Downtown will showcase the public art installation of over a dozen decorated fiberglass boots this summer.
The “2005 Boots About Town” boots were created in celebration of the Red Wing Shoes 100th year and they are coming out of storage for this temporary installation which begins today and will be displayed on the West End Riverview Skyway Pedestrian Bridge and in areas Downtown through September.
Megan Tsui, Executive Director of Downtown Main Street says the construction on Old West Main Street is very challenging for the businesses located there, and they wanted to do something to bring awareness that the area is still accessible and open for business. She says Boots on the Bridge is a fun trip for locals down memory lane, and an exciting way for visitors to explore Red Wing.
