Special Monday Night Concert 20 Aug 12

The Monday Night Concerts in New Ulm’s German Park continue this evening with a special event. The Michael Lucio Dancers from the Lower Sioux Community will team up with the Dale Holtz Polka Band to perform together for the 3rd year in a row. The show begins at 7pm at German Park, and at 7:30 Dakota Artist JoAnne Bird will unveil a special granite monument in the park that acknowledges the suffering of both sides in the US-Dakota War of 1862. The concert and the monument were made possible through funds from the State of Minnesota along with dozens of donations from area organizations and individuals. Those attending the concert are reminded to bring their own lawn chair or blanket. Relay For Life will be selling pop and popcorn as well. Next week is the final Monday Night Concert of the year in New Ulm.
