Welcoming Josh Duhamel to the North Dakota State Fair

Safe Haven Movie Night
After having to reschedule our original Movie in the Park night due to weather, we were excited to have Mother Nature cooperate with us last night for the screening of Safe Haven at the Scandinavian Heritage Park. With over 220 RSVPs to this event on Facebook, we had a terrific turnout and couldn’t have asked for better weather! The movie, starring Minot’s very own, Josh Duhamel, was a perfect way of getting ready to welcome him home for the start of the North Dakota State Fair where he has been named Grand Marshal of this year’s parade!

The North Dakota State Parade is always a summer highlight that not only fills the streets with smiles, music and fun but also marks the official start of the fair! This year, the parade’s theme is Transforming ND and all participants are encouraged to incorporate that theme into their floats and music. The parade will take place this Saturday (July 20th, 2013) beginning sharply at 9:15am. It will start on the corner of Broadway and Burdick Expressway and run to the ND State Fairgrounds. We recommend arriving early with lawn chairs in tow so you can stake out the perfect spot to watch all the action. You may also want to bring water and sunscreen (we’re keeping our fingers crossed that the sun will be shining) but right now, it looks like there is a possibility of rain showers on Saturday, so you may want to to keep an eye on the forecast and even bring an umbrella just in case (by mcclinton).
Beyond the parade, this year’s fair is slated to be packed with all-star entertainment including concerts from country superstars Tim McGraw (7/19), Scotty McCreery (7/25) and Toby Keith (7/26), rock band,  Journey (7/20) and more. For more information on all the special events going on and other attractions throughout the fair, click here.
If you missed out on last night’s movie night, don’t worry, we’ve got another #MovieInMinot  scheduled for Friday, August 9th! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for details about the upcoming movie night. Also, to see more photos from our Safe Haven movie screening, visit our Facebook page here.
