Don't Miss The ND State Fair Parade

Minot Real Estate

New to Minot? You don't want to miss the ND State Parade.

ND State Fair Parade


The ND State Fair Parade is held the 1st Saturday of The State Fair. 

Earl Allen

This is the only parade held in Minot ND and it is huge. If you want a good seat to watch from you need to set up early. I, and many others actually set up the night before the parade by parking our vehicles along the route where we want to sit.

By 8:00 AM you will be lucky to find a good shady spot. If you wait till 9:00 you will most likely find yourself parking blocks away from the parade route and having any luck finding a spot to watch from at all. Bring bags for your kids to put their candy in. My kids always got about the amount they get from Halloween times 10.

Even when you are prepared be ready for those who are not. You always get a few who have an attitude that come late, try to horn in on your spot and send their kids out to stand in front of your kids to get the candy. Just be patient, bring a taser and mace (I'm kidding).

The parade is a lot of fun and lasts about 4 hours. The State Fair kicks off on Friday night and lasts 8 days. Go to both, you and the kids will have fun.

BTW The ND State Fair was rated as the BEST State Fair in the Nation by the Associate of State Fairs.
