Arabesque Tent set up in Marquette Park

There is a new temporary edition to the Ellwood Mattson Lower Harbor Park in Downtown Marquette.

The Arabesque Tent was erected today on the west side of the park near the fireman’s memorial.

The large white tent will be used for a variety of performances including a Pink Floyd tribute band.

And, it will be used for several wedding ceremonies.

The tent will be removed at the end of August and put into storage until next summer.

In 2013, the City of Marquette plans to put the tent up in June and leave it up for the duration of the summer.
