Grand Forks resident Ellie Walsh, 7, reacts to a magic trick during the Summerthing Kids! art festival Wednesday at University Park in Grand Forks.

The art festival's main goal is to provide a family-fun atmosphere that allows kids to be creative and get outside. During the two-day arts festival children can have their face painted, make peanut butter pine cones for birds, watch magic tricks, dance to fun age-appropriate music, jump on inflatables and even watch a former world yo-yo champion show off his skills. 

Current NDSU student John Narum, a World Yo-Yo contest champion in 2005, made the drive up to Grand Forks to teach kids the basic fundamentals of throwing yo-yo. "It's great to come out here," Narum said. "I just get to hang out and meet new people."

Summerthing Kids! arts festival will take place again tomorrow from 5-8 p.m. in University Park. If you have any questions call the Grand Forks Park District Special Events Manager Lynne Roche at (701) 746-2750.
