One local business is celebrating their 40th anniversary with a very special unveiling.
Eckroth Music revealed 3 metal statues of kids playing instruments on their plaza Saturday.
The business has been working with metal sculptor Tom Neary for a year now to create these works of art.
Neary has done many other metal statues around North Dakota, one of his most popular being Lewis and Clark up at Fort Mandan.
It's been quite a project to do and it's been a struggle at times but it's done and everything came together real well.
With a brass band playing in the background, Neary and the founders of Eckroth, Bill and Mary Ann cut the ribbons to present the statues to the public.
Their son, Jeff, now owns the business and says he thought the statues would be a perfect fit for the Eckroth Plaza.
"Even though they're wonderful physical statues, they really represent much more than that and as I mentioned earlier it really gives us a chance everyday for us and our community to be reminded how important music is so it's a living commemoration of 40 years of business." says Neary.
Neary created the statues at his home in Washburn before they made the trip here to be set in their permanent position.
