Life in Edina is pretty typical for most residents. Lawn care, youth activities and trips to the cabin take up many summer weekends. The importance of family is evident, marked by so many who move into the area to be nearer to family or to enjoy all of Edina’s family-friendly amenities.

Photographer and Edina East High School graduate Bryan Singer is mostly known for his sports photography. His photographs of Edina High School athletics have earned him awards in the past two years of our Images of Edina photo contests. But Singer clearly has an eye for more than sports.

The Edina Senior Center is a whirlwind of activity. The Edina Singing Seniors practice on Mondays. You might want to follow that up with a tap dance class or a bridge game.

Consummate baseball fan and actor Bill Murray was at a St. Paul Saints game when he noticed a bunch of guys dressed in matching T-shirts and caps.

Sensing a kinship, he went over and asked, “Who are you guys?”

Edina’s annual three-day art fair is back for its 51st year June 2-4. Work by artists across the nation and Canada will be on display.
