MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - Super Bowl festivities have people traveling across the Twin Cities partying like never before, including some celebrities who have taken over downtown.
The Barstool Sports Party at the Lumber Exchange building welcomed Shaquille O'Neal who got spinning behind the turntables. He was joined by Jamie Foxx and Kaskade in what was just one of the major events celebrating the Super Bowl.
Earlier in the evening Friday, Fox 9 hit the red carpet at the Rolling Stone Live Party at International Market Square.
"I got my big bomber jacket with a hoodie. I got my stuff on keep my trunk dry. So I'm good, but I'm not going to walk the streets,” said Cowboys Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith.
"I like Minneapolis. I was here years ago; I did my first film here. I remember that was shot here," said NYPD Blue star Kim Delaney.
Others like rapper T-Pain, who was performing at the event, thought the weather deserved the cold shoulder.
"I'm from Florida. This is not weather; this is death. I personally feel like this is what hell feels like. I don't think hell is hot. Hot feels nice," he said.
In addition to Jamie Foxx, the fighter Floyd Mayweather as well as basketball player Kris Humphries were in town, with parties going until 4 a.m.
