Father’s Day fun at Lanesboro’s Art in the Park

Father’s Day in this area of Minnesota is also synonymous with another important date on the calendar which is Lanesboro’s Art in the Park event. For those who may have a difficult time finding dad that gift that you thought he may actually use or trying to schedule events to do together as a family on dad’s special day, the planning is done for you at Art in the Park each and every Father’s Day since 1980.

Even dad’s gift was taken care of when kids visited the “Make a Tie for Dad” table to design and create a tie made especially for their fathers. Some dads walking around Sylvan Park on Sunday, June 15, 2014 were fortunate enough to proudly wear several ties made by their children. Mike Flaby was one of these lucky dads, wearing more than one tie made by his children Natalie,10, Oliver, 3, and Hunter, age 10 months.

Of course Art in the Park is enjoyed by everyone, not only dads. Women have been known to purchase an item or two even though it’s “Father’s” Day and children have so much to see and do they are not sure where to start but usually end up following alongside parents in hopes of taking home something special of their own.

This year’s Art in the Park began at 10 a.m. with music from the Indie-folk duo Patchouli and although the day began with some rain and even more wind, the skies cleared in the late morning and gave way to a pleasant sunny afternoon when Patchouli returned to the stage to play again from 3-5 p.m. Patchouli consists of Bruce Hecksel and Julie Patchouli who love returning to Lanesboro several times a year. Patchouli will be in Lanesboro again on June 25, July 30, and September 14 of this year. For more information visit their website at www.patchouli.net.

Music continued in the Sylvan Park gazebo throughout the day including the jazz band Patty and the Buttons and local favorite Tom Schramm providing entertainment for the crowd as some chose to get up and dance to their favorite tunes. Music at Art in the Park is presented with support from Mark and Romi Wilhelm and the Rudolf E. Wilhelm Fund of the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan.

With more than 100 vendor booths full of fine art and creative crafts placed in one large circle around Sylvan Park and additional food stands and activities inside that large circle, it takes quite awhile to stroll around and see everyt .....
