Music, Food, And Fun: Duluth’s Festival By The Lake On July 23
The 4th annual event celebrates Summer and invites families to enjoy the day at Bayfront Festival Park this Saturday.
The day begins from 11 am till 7 pm. The day will also feature music, with seven music acts and over 100 exhibitors in the park, including more than a dozen food and beverage vendors. So, kids can be kids, and parents have something to do too.
New this year from the Irving Community Club Kids’ Corner, you can see magician Kelvin Saline and entertainer Dan the Monkeyman; there are also bouncy houses, games, and more activities for the kids.
Tracy Lundeen, the event co-founder said he was excited to add something just for kids, with entertainment and other things to do. There are other things too like music for the parents to listen to. Plenty of choices for food so the whole family can spend the day.
Earlier I said there were 7 acts to perform music. The first act hits Centricity Stage starting at Noon with Maxi Child, followed by a rare reunion performance by Sound Inc, Hermantown hometown-girl, and now recording in Nashville, Sydney Hansen, Born Too Late, who just released their new album, WoodBlind, Virgil Caine, and Theft by Swindle.
Kynze Lundeen, the event producer said it's nearly double the size with vendors, so there will be plenty to walk around and see and take the whole time to get around to everything for the whole family. There will be beautiful handmade crafts and retail businesses with pop-up shops for businesses looking to hire and non-profits to raise awareness.
The event is asking for a $5 donation, with proceeds in part benefiting the Bluebird Foundation, a local non-profit that supports youth in the arts.
