Large Turnout For Art & Wine Walk

2 / 2

Hundreds of people in downtown Grand Forks and East Grand Forks made the most of the weather today,

taking in art, with a drink in hand.

It's the second Art and Wine walk of the year.

Both downtowns were alive with restaurants and other businesses playing hosts to local artists and wine vendors.

15 different locations were setup along the walk.

Organizers say today's heat was great for turnout and they hope to keep expanding the event.

"We usually have between 450 and 500 people but as the event grows we expect to top 500 most months," says Mari Strinden of the Northern Valley Arts Council.

The Art & Wine walk finished with a champagne reception at the empire arts center with special prizes given away.

The next walk is August 16th.  For more information, visit:
