ST. CLOUD -- An annual summer concert series kicked off at the oldest park in St. Cloud on Thursday night.

The St. Cloud Municipal Band performed patriotic tunes at this year’s first Music in Barden Park event.

Yoga was offered in the park before the show, and root beer floats were available during the concert.

The free events run from 7:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. and will be held on Thursdays from now until the middle of August.

July 18th: Meire Grove Band
