This Thursday, May 21st, the Saints open at their new home, CHS field in Lowertown St. Paul!
Union Depot will welcome St. Paul Saints fans at a home opener celebration on the North Plaza which will include a performance by the Harding High School Drum Line, cool jazz by Twin Cities Jazz Festival act The Jack Brass Band, an art market featuring the work of 10 Lowertown artists (made by kristi being one of them!) and others from the St. Paul Art Collective, and samplings of Lipton Sparkling Iced Tea, a new blend of classic tea infused with tiny bubbles and available in three flavors – peach, raspberry and lemonade.
While supplies last, guests will also receive a free Hometown Hanky, featuring sketches of Lowertown landmarks drawn by renowned area artist Ken Avidor who resides with his wife in the Union Depot Lofts. (See attached artwork.) Christos Union Depot will be open regular hours that night, offering attendees a delicious option for a pre-game dinner. The Drum Line will perform 30-minute sessions throughout the event.
Come on down and join in the fun! I'll be there showing my art as part of the event :)
