During WWI, community singing was a way to keep spirits up, and solidify cultures. The city’s parks competed against each other for the annual prize of “the best singing park.”

In 1930, it is recored that 45,000 people stood on this hill in Powderhorn Park for a community sing. This hill is also where people gather to watch the sun sculpture row across the lake for the culmination of the annual May Day Parade, and the song “You Are My Sunshine” fills the air.
