RAPID CITY, SD – Art Night Downtown continues this Friday, July 11, 5 to 8 p.m., in Downtown Rapid City. Art Night Downtown is held every second Friday night this summer, through September, and brings businesses and artists together to create lively, interactive experiences throughout downtown.

Visitors will discover surprises in more than 25 participating businesses, as well as on sidewalks, in the street and at Main Street Square. Meet artists, browse their work, listen to music, enjoy refreshments and learn some dance moves at Pop-up Tango.

Pop-up Tango is presented by Gotta Dance, where they will present a full tango less from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., and mini lessons and demos of other dance forms throughout the event. The first 50 participants will also be presented with a rose, courtesy of Victoria’s Garden.
