Third Songs on the Lawn a Success

Popular event extended into July

Mankato, MINN (June 28, 2012) – The heat was on, but the humidity stayed down for today’s Greater Mankato Songs on the Lawn presented by Xcel Energy.  There was another great crowd of community members who enjoyed food from various vendors, the shaded areas and great music by The DW3.

There is still one more Songs on the Lawn event this season on Thursday, July 12 featuring music by The Divers. This is a make-up date due to inclement weather on June 7. 

A variety of food was sold by area vendors this season, including: Angie’s Kettle Corn, Buffalo Wild Wings, Culver’s Frozen Custard, Dino’s Gourmet Pizzeria, Hy-Vee, Neighbor’s Italian Bistro, Number 4 American Bar & Kitchen, Olives, Pub 500, Sodexo, Tavern on the Avenue and The Loose Moose Saloon.

The event is put on by Greater Mankato Growth Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Civic Center Plaza (in front of the Intergovernmental Center) with food, music and fun activities. Admission and parking is free in the Cherry Street and Civic Center ramps.
