Horse racing is back!

I haven’t yet had the chance to experience live horse racing in North Dakota and it’s one thing that I really want to do. I’ve driven past the North Dakota Horse Park – north of Fargo – and it looks so cool with impeccible buildings and those pretty white fences. I do kind of picture myself with an amazing hat and dress picking all the right horses to bet on. But that’s a post for after I’ve gotten there AND picked all the right horses while wearing an amazing hat and dress.

THIS post is to inform you that racing is BACK in North Dakota!  After a two-year hiatus, live racing returns July 14-15 and July 21-22.  Admission is just $3.00 with kids 12 and under admitted free.  Nine races take place each day and they do have cool names like “Josies Little Outlaw” and “Rulers Tribute.”

Want two more reasons to head to Fargo? Thru July 15 the Red River Valley Fair is taking place in West Fargo – with midway, live entertainment, kids fun and so much more! And the downtown Fargo Street Fair with crafts, vendors and delish food takes place July 19-21.

Have racing fever? North Dakota has auto tracks too. From Bottineau to Wishek to can enjoy rip-roarin’ fun!

National snocross racing comes to Fargo

One of my personal favorite sports comes to Fargo this weekend.  The home of baseball champions the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks will be transformed into a race track for the return of national snocross racing to Fargo.  Racing takes place December 10 and 11 at Newman Outdoor Field, featuring the world’s best professional racers and freestyle snowmobile athletes.  Racers include 9-time Winter X Games Gold Medalist Tucker Hibbert and fan favorite Levi LaValle.  Ticket prices range from $10 to $35 and can be purchased online.
