A full day packed with polkas, waltzes, prizes and more is on tap in the 44th annual Concertina Bowl in Blaine on Saturday, Jan. 28. The event will be held in Brook Hall at Blainbrook Entertainment Center (12000 Central Avenue N.E. (Hwy.65)) and is sponsored by Blaine/Coon Rapids Knights of Columbus Council #5141.
“The Concertina Bowl has become a very important fundraiser for our Knights of Columbus Council #5141,” organizer Art Ohotto said. “Over the years, this one-day event has raised in excess of $100,000 that has gone mainly to local charities and of course some to finance the council. It is a day-long jam session where many players take the stage, usually around 40 or so. Plus, we like to feature a headliner.”
