Next week, you'll have your chance to help rebuild a beloved playground in East Grand Forks that burned down.

Leighton Broadcasting is having a fundraiser for Sherlock Playground next Wednesday.

The playground burned down last month with three-fourths of it a total loss.

A co-coordinator for a new playground says this fundraiser will have games and live music.

She says it's a good kickoff to rebuild a playground everyone used.

"You could drive by any day and the park was full. What is really interesting was the school buses we would find parked out here from surrounding communities," co-coordinator Penny Pape said.

The fundraiser begins at 2 p.m. in front of the Boardwalk restaurant in East Grand Forks.
