GGFYP’s 2nd Annual Connect the Parks series kicks off Thursday

Summer is finally here!

With summer comes the chance for everyone in the community to get out and enjoy all the wonderful parks Grand Forks has to offer. The Young Professionals have a way for everyone to enjoy one of the smaller parks in the downtown area.

Connect the Parks is an event the GGFYP hosts during the summer on the last Thursday of June, July, and August from 6 to 9 pm in Pillsbury Park (next to the Urban Stampede).

Each Connect the Parks event will feature live music by local talent. There is plenty of space to lay out a blanket or set up a few chairs to sit and listen. There will be food and non-alcoholic beverages available on site and for carry-out from neighboring restaurants. There will also be a beer garden set up along the edge of the park.

Families young and young at heart are invited to come enjoy this fun evening. There is no cost to come and enjoy the evening, just an invitation to enjoy a park you may have only passed, great music, and fabulous company.

Bike, walk, or drive downtown to Pillsbury Park this Thursday from 6 to 9 pm to enjoy this unique experience Grand Forks has to offer.

See you there!
