MOORHEAD — Fans of The Avett Brothers might suffer from some “True Sadness” this weekend — the band has postponed its Moorhead concert until next year because of cold weather.
FARGO — A series of more than 20 events is underway throughout Fargo-Moorhead in conjunction with National Welcoming Week. Events are held around the country for the week, an idea encouraged by the organization Welcoming America six years ago to make communities welcoming to all and bring together immigrants, refugees and native-born residents. For a full schedule, visit www.welcomingfm.org . Upcoming events through Sunday, Sept. 23, will take place in Fargo unless otherwise noted. Ongoing:
MOORHEAD — Before they take the stage as the opening act at tonight’s Cheap Trick concert, two members of American new wave band The Romantics stopped by a store here to check out the merchandise and talk music.
FARGO — The Miss North Dakota program is standing behind Cara Mund, the first North Dakotan crowned Miss America who recently called out the national organization's leadership in a scathing letter.
FARGO — A fourth season of the hit FX show "Fargo" is going to happen — and Chris Rock will play a mob boss this time around in the TV series known for surprising twists and time jumps.
FARGO — The local Chamber of Commerce is excited about its keynote speaker for an event that's still more than five months away — but they have a good reason to be excited.
WEST FARGO – Scorching temperatures led to a drop in attendance at this year’s Red River Valley Fair.
FARGO — More than 150 people gathered here Tuesday morning, June 12, to celebrate the role of the arts in the community and talk about a stronger vision for the future during The Arts Partnership's annual State of the Arts.
FARGO — Fourteen months after West Acres lost its Sears store, the large vacancy at Fargo's mall is back in business. Best Buy will celebrate its grand opening at 9 a.m. Friday, June 8, occupying just over 50,000 square feet of the roughly 90,000-square-foot former Sears building. It's a small move for the electronics retailer, which has operated since 1994 in a 45,000-square-foot standalone building just south of West Acres at 1615 38th St. S. But Chris Heaton, West Acres' vice president of property management, said it'll mean big things for Best Buy's Fargo presence.
BISMARCK – The Republican-endorsed candidate for North Dakota secretary of state is out of the race just two days after The Forum reported on his 2006 window-peeping incident on the North Dakota State University campus.
