It’s State Fair Week

Concerts … food … carnival … exhibits … food … free entertainment … competitions … food … It’s State Fair Week!  Get to Minot for the return of the North Dakota State Fair!  Last year’s flooding in Minot forced the cancellation of the State Fair which is back and bigger than ever in 2012.

Through July 28, guests will find days and nights full of entertainment, food and fun! Upcoming concert headliners include the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Chris Young, Blake Shelton and Foreigner.  Plus, there are a ton of free stage acts like the Swampmaster Alligator Show and Comic Ventriliquist.

Families will find SO much to do!  Are you registered for the Cloverdale Hot Dog Eating Contest?  How about the Kids Cupcake Decorating Contest?  Every day, head to the ND Game & Fish Skills Park for hands-on tries at fishing, archery and trapping.  Looking for some deals this week? No problem – the State Fair has them posted online.

And did I mention food?!  With the Fair comes so much yummy goodness!  This year a team of fearless eaters had the super tough job of tasting all the new foods on the midway.  Check out the results … while I apply to be on the judging committee next year.

When visiting the North Dakota State Fair, be sure to take lots of pictures and then upload them to Flickr in order to enter the first ever ND State Fair Flickr Photo Contest! Your photo could win you $500!

Take me out to the ball game!

The North Dakota Tourism staff - it was Halloween, but even then we were excited for baseball season. Go RedHawks!

We’ve got a little baseball fever here in the North Dakota Tourism office.  We’re following the 50th anniversary of Roger Maris’ legendary 1961 season, tomorrow the F-M RedHawks start their regular season and on Friday evening, an interview with North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple will air during the Minnesota Twins pre-game show on Fox Sports North.

By the way, the Governor is being interviewed by that awesome host Marney Gellner who is also a North Dakotan!  And you’ll want to tune into the pre-game because we’re giving away four tickets to a RedHawks game of your choice and Governor Dalrymple will tell you how to enter.  The Twins Live Pregame show starts at 6:30 p.m. (CST), May 13 on FSN.

The RedHawks start their season on the road, but next week (May 16, 17 and 18) will be home to host the St. Paul Saints for the first time in six years!  These two teams had multiple championships in the Northern League of Independent Professional Baseball and it will be a classic rivalry as they compete in the American Association.

Oh! And while you’re enjoying baseball this summer be sure to grab a bag of Giant Sunflower Seeds, they’re produced here in North Dakota too!
