Grant will fund Americana festival
The Rosemount Area Arts Council has picked up steam over the last couple of years planning events and offering opportunities for residents. The Metropolitan Regional Arts Council has taken notice and has awarded the young group a grant.
MRAC awarded the arts council a $7,300 grant to plan a Bluegrass/Americana festival the first weekend of Leprechaun Days in 2010. The money will help the arts council expand an already existing event that has proven popular.
