Officials are expecting about 40,000 spectators for Saturday’s Red Bull Flugtag on Harriet Island in Saint Paul.
People are buzzing (from the caffeine, presumably) about the event, whose entrants include Goldy Gopher and “Favre’s Wingmen.”
Goldy’s already predicting a 195-foot
jump fall, which would tie the current world record.
flight fall starts at 1 p.m.
There’s also action upriver in Minneapolis from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. as surfers compete in the World Wakesurfing Championships. Surfing will occur north of the Broadway Bridge along West River Road.
