(PHOTOS) St. Louis Park Swings to Kick Off Parktacular

The annual city celebration started Thursday night.

Attendees got to reminisce with the music and dance of the '20s, '30s and '40s, and enjoyed an evening of socializing, eating, music, and dancing alongside the St. Louis Park Ambassadors and Senior Ambassadors Thursday as Parktacular kicked off.  

During the Parktacular Dinner/Dance and Senior Coronation, past senior ambassadors were recognized and got to share memories of the year they held their title. Special guests included ambassadors from Hopkins and the Minneapolis Aquatennial.

The Steve Blons Ensemble set the tone with their fine music and Swing Cats demonstrated dances of the '20s and '30s. Check out the photo gallery above for a taste of what else went on during the fun night.

Glad you liked the photos, Joan. A different photographer will be shooting Rubber Soul tonight, and then David will be back Saturday to capture the full day. We'll also have video of the parade.
