Can I also hold my reception in one of these outdoor spaces?

Yes, your reception could also be held on one of the outdoor space locations.  Similar to any other outdoor wedding in Minnesota, you would likely want to place a large tent.  There is no power at any of the outdoor spaces, but Northern Pacific Center does own a gas powered generator that could be rented during the event.  Restrooms would also have to be arranged.  Pricing for an outdoor space reception is $1,800 for weekday/Sunday and $2,800 for Saturday.
