FARGO — Partnering with the Downtown Community Partnership, professional graffiti artist Nick "Shun One" Heartling has helped coordinate artists from all over the country to give the alley between First and Second Avenues North and Fourth and Fifth Streets, behind The Forum building a bit of a face lift, as well as provide entertainment for the community.

Seven local bands will take the stage during this family-friendly event and face painting will be ready to roll for the kiddos.

The community was even invited to try their hand at street art — cans of spray paint, or "rattle cans" as the artists call them, were available for people young and old to try.
