At a Tuesday afternoon meeting, Detroit Lakes City Council members and other community leaders decided on a name for the community picnic on May 12: "Parkfest."


The name wasn't originally on the list of 17 community submissions, but a similar one, "DL Mayfest," was. Voting members liked the general idea of a "fest," but combined other ideas on the list, many of which included "Park," to come up with the final name.
