Street Party In Downtown Fort Frances Tonight

Posted on Thursday, August 31, 2017 13:00 PM

The first of a couple of street parties in downtown Fort Frances goes tonight.

The Orville Councillor Band will take to a portable stage at 6 p.m. being set up on Scott Street in absence of the one at the Rainy Lake Square being ready.

Rainy River Future Development Corporation consultant Tannis Drysdale says the concert is free, but concert-goers are recommended to bring a lawn chair.

The street will begin to be blocked at 4 p.m.  and re-opened after the performance at around 8 p.m.

It's one of five acts that were booked for the Rainy Lake Square.

Construction on the Square is expected to be complete until September 22.

At least other act, Little Miss Higgins, is to performed before that and will be on the portable stage as well.
