Youth For Duluth P-ART-ied on the plaza
The smell of popcorn and cupcakes filled the air as teens from across the city mingled, looked at art and enjoyed performances by young musicians. Monday, Aug. 18 marked Youth for Duluth's first "Plaza P-ART-Y," a celebration of local teen talent at the Duluth Public Library.
"I feel like Youth For Duluth is building a stronger bond between youth in every area," said Henri LaLiberte, 16. "It is the key to making young people realize what a special city they live in."
One of the new organization's goals is to provide teenagers from different high schools to meet and mingle.
The party was the second organized event dedicated to achieving that goal. Earlier this summer, Youth for Duluth held a well attended citywide scavenger hunt.
