One thing well worth blogging about within Minot North Dakota is an event called The Norsk Hostfest. The Scandinavion heritage of this area is emphesised through out the Minot community but this event in particular brings us visiters from all around the World. This event is much like the State Fair in the manor that it hosts many top billing stars over the 10 day period of celebration. Also it is held on the North Dakota State Fair Grounds. The only thing missing is the carnavil rides. However the carnavil atmosphere is present as venders bring, make, and sell their items of Scandinavion interest. This is an event for the entire family with activities running all day long and well into the night.
Just how BIG is the Nork Hostfest? Royalty of Norway attend it. Not only is every hotel/motel room booked far in advance but many local folks rent rooms and RV parking spaces. The demand for lodging is so great for the Norsk Hostfest that it creates a demand in Bismarck ND one hundred miles away so don't leave the planning for the last minute. You will enjoy this event even if you are a German like me, after all aren't we all Irish on St. Patrick's Day?
I certainly can not tell you nearly as much about the Norsk Hostfest as the people who operate it so please visit their website at http://www.hostfest.com/ today. If you do not have a high speed connection and a ton of memory you may want to turn the sound off for this site.
