You might not be Prince, but you will be treated like royalty at the MSU Community Block Party. Set your calendar for Sept. 21, noon to 4 p.m. on the Old Main lawn for this year’s event. A celebration of Minot State’s Centennial, the Block Party promises family fun and entertainment for all ages.

Free lunch and birthday cake will be served from noon to 1:30 p.m. Throughout the Saturday afternoon, the area will host bounce houses and assorted kids’ activities, historical videos in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall, door prizes, campus tours, First Lutheran Cemetery tours, music by the MSU Jazz Band and Marching Band, DC Entertainment and Jason LeVasseur. Biographer and MSU faculty, Mark Timbrook will also be available to sign “When Dreams Come True,” the centennial edition of MSU history.

At 2 p.m., a special Centennial program will include the Minot Air Force Base Honor Guard and several local, state and national guests commemorating MSU’s continuing legacy of education, service and community engagement. Homecoming coronation at 3 p.m. and a rededication of Old Main, MSU’s oldest building, cap the afternoon festivities.

The Community Block Party, sponsored by the Minot Young Professionals, is free and open to everyone. All campus lots will be available for guest parking.

In case of inclement weather, the block party will be moved to the MSU Dome.
