There’s always something to do in Fargo-Moorhead, but this weekend three very different events jump out offering other aspects on art shows, theaters and a street-side celebration.
1. 'A Walk with Charlie'
There are plenty of great museums, galleries and other spaces that display art, but there's always room for more. A unique opportunity presents itself tonight when Touchmark at Harwood Groves, 1200 Harwood Dr., S., Fargo, opens its doors to the public for a show of work by the late Fergus Falls, Minn., artist, Charles Beck. "A Walk with Charlie" was organized by members of the retirement community and features about 30 works owned by residents as well as woodcuts Touchmark bought for permanent display. The show opens at 6:30 p.m., with a $15 admission to benefit Kaddatz Galleries in Fergus Falls, which represents Beck's art. (701) 476-1200.
2. Night Bazaar
The Red River Market won't open for a few more weeks but the space will be in full use tonight for the first Night Bazaar. In the spirit of the market, the event in the Broadway Garage, 409 Broadway, will feature some different experiences with live music, a henna tattoo artist, tarot card reading, a mobile pinball arcade, fire dancers, locally made arts and crafts, street food and beer. The fun runs from 5 to 9 tonight, with future bazaars set for July 26, Aug. 16, Sept. 27 and Oct. 25.
3. Sun Celebration
A staple of summer in the area is the annual Trollwood mainstage musical. "Hello, Dolly!" is still in rehearsals, but Trollwood Performing Arts School, 801 50th Ave S, Moorhead, celebrates with a colorful event tonight. The Sun Celebration observes the 40th anniversary of the program with a barbecue, face painting, a slime station, magic shows, door prizes and more. The fun starts at 5 p.m., with food and activities, followed by performances at 6 around the site. At 8:45, a special show will be presented in the amphitheater, followed by a preview of "Hello, Dolly!" The event is free and open to the public. www.trollwood.org.
