Downtown Arts Market Thursdays are getting rave reviews. People are enjoying the entertainment, supporting the vendors and participating in the activities. Its great to see all ages coming out, interacting socially and having a good time.

Here is a short video of last week’s activities – a celebration of Native American culture with flute player, hoop dancer and storyteller Kevin Locke and Ryan Keplin and Band great fiddlers in the Metis tradition.

Come join the festivities and make Thursday evenings in the Hansen Arts Park part of  your summer fun!
