ST. CLOUD - A large group of residents from Spalt, Germany will arrive in St. Cloud late Saturday night. The delegation of about 75 people includes the mayor, the deputy mayor, and the city's municipal band.

St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis says we're celebrating 10-years of the sister city partnership.

While the Germans are here they'll renew their partnership with St. Cloud during the city council meeting on Monday. You can also attend a couple of free concerts featuring both the St. Cloud and Spalt Municipal bands, the first one is Monday at 8:00 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre and the second one is Wednesay at 5:00 p.m. at Lake George.

The Spalt band will also be at the Mai Bock Festival on Saturday, May 21st at Beaver Island Brewing Company.

Kleis says they'll be staying for a little over a week with several host families.

This is the ninth exchange of residents over the past 10 years.
