October 13, 1990

October 13, 2008

The most important thing in Minnesota that happened on October 13th was that KMR Architects opened the Target Center in Minneapolis on October 13, 1990.

It cost 104 million dollars for the construction. It is located on 600 First Avenue North. They have a stadium there that can fit between 13,000 to 19,000 people for most events! There have been many events held at the Target Center. The first event held in the Target Center was a game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the. Dallas Mavericks in the opening year. Minnesota won 98 to 85. They have since remodeled it in 2004. It is still open and used for Timberwolves games concerts, conventions and many other activities for the public to enjoy.

Thanks to Mr. Gunderson’s 6th grade class at Virginia-Roosevelt Elementary School for the research on October’s Day in History.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
