Arts in the Parks

Arts in the Parks

Posted: Updated:

Music, snacks, and good company are what filled the Minot Scandinavian Heritage park this afternoon for the third "Arts in the Parks" event of the summer.

Today at the event, Dakota Dixie, a band formed in 1983 by college students in Minot, performed.

Grandparents and toddlers alike gathered to enjoy music and popcorn.

All summer there will be concerts, as well as visual art every Thursday and Sunday.

Arts in the Parks shows performances of local groups, as well as young talent.

Director Terri Aldrich says she can't think of a better way to spend a summer day.

(Terri Aldrich, Executive Director, Minot Area Council of the Arts) "It's such a great way to spend an evening or a Sunday afternoon. There's nothing better than a North Dakota summer evening or summer afternoon outside, listening to music, having a bag of popcorn, and visiting."

Attending concerts at Arts in the Parks is free, but donations are accepted to go towards the program.

The ongoing concerts all summer will be Thursdays at 7, and Sundays at 4 and 7.
