Sauk Rapids has announced the lineup for their Rock the Riverside concert series this summer. The concert series will take place on Thursdays starting on July 1st.

There have been some major changes made to Southside Park since construction began in June 2020. In addition to the new outdoor performance space, there is an events center building, a splash pad, and smaller event space.
Southside Park has gotten a total facelift and I can't wait to see it filled with people coming together and enjoying live music along the river this summer. It is one of my favorite parks in the area, and I'm so glad we won't have to spend another summer away from it.
