An immersion of culture today for the German Folk Festival at Rheult Farms.

Turnout was down about 400 people from previous years because of the hot temps, but that didn't stop the roughly 750 people who did attend from having a great time.

The Fargo Park District put on the fest, with bands playing, German food consumed, history taught and traditional german arts and crafts made.

"We just found out it's about a 100 degree heat index, so with that we still have a great crowd as you can see listening to the bands and music so it's been pretty steady all day," says Fargo Park District organizer Tricia Wehrle.

After English, German is the most spoken language in North Dakota.
