Street dance to benefit Bemidji Fire Department

BEMIDJI — Part of a downtown street will be closed Friday night for a street dance and concert.

The Fire and Ice Street Dance will be hosted outside of the Classic Hard Times Saloon and Toasty Beaver’s Bar and Grill on Third Street Northwest.

Gates open at 7 p.m. and there is a $7 cover charge. Beer and a full bar will be available.

The event is also a fundraiser for the Bemidji Fire Department and will feature the Fargo-based band 32 Below. It coincides with the Minnesota State Fire Department Association’s annual conference in Bemidji this weekend.
