Come join FMCT staff, Moorhead residents, volunteers, and local organizations in enhancing the city's charm and character! At the Build-a-Ton-aThon, you'll be part of a collaborative effort to construct installations which will later be moved to pre-identified areas around the city, breathing new life into underutilized spaces and creating vibrant community gathering points that embody the essence of Moorhead.
