'Art'illary hits fairgrounds
History came to life this past weekend as the 15th Annual North Dakota Muzzleloaders Trade Fair and Convention hit the Red River Valley Fairgrounds.
Over 70 tables packed the Ag Building with vendors, demonstrations and displays from the fur trade up to the cowboy era.
“It’s very much a family event,” Darrel Kersting, trade fair coordinator said. “It’s a lot of fun and people bring their kids in and see how things were done.”
The event draws people from all over North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and even Canada.
“It’s one thing for people to read in a book about history, but when you put yourself in it, it brings it a little more to home,” Kersting said.
