In my opinion, THE best time to start thinking about the fair is NOW when it's -17 degrees out

Yep, this morning here in Bismarck and Mandan we woke up to -17 degrees, the only thing worse was that it's a Monday. Obviously, this is looming to be an early preview of what most of February could be like - hey it's North Dakota, should we be surprised? I'm pretty sure that it's normal for most of us to start imagining walking down the fairway at the North Dakota State Fair OR at West Fargo - Red River Valley Fair. Both events will have the SAME things in common - entertainment and warmer weather. So I guess instead of calling this "Cabin Fever" - we have "Fair Fever", and just last Friday Red River Valley Fair tormented us even more with their huge announcement. Most of us WILL "Know Their Name"

Make plans and mark this down on your calendar - Saturday, July 15th

An easy road out to West Fargo is a must, check out what the Red River Valley Fair Facebook page posted last Friday:

I ask you this, isn't that mind-blowing? When was the last time you were a part of something that incredible? So bundle up this next month or so and keep dreaming of 85-degree weather, sipping on a cold one, and singing along to the band that EVERYONE knows their name!
