Summer in the Magic City isn't quite in full swing until the weekly Arts in the Parks begin.. and today kicked off just that.
Friends and family gathered at Oak Park this evening to enjoy live music, paintings by a local artist, and a snack.
Tonight's entertainment is the city band, but many other local artists will also be performing throughout the summer.
The director of the event says that having these weekly shows provides the perfect summer entertainment for citizens in Minot.
(Terri Aldrich, Executive Director, Minot Area Council of the Arts) "There's nothing better than being outdoors in the park on a North Dakota evening. That's glorious. And then when you get great music, visual art, and a few friends to share it with, it's just fabulous."
Arts in the Parks is every Thursday and Sunday through August, and each event is free of charge.
