High-flying fun: 4 things to do in Fargo-Moorhead this weekend
Journey may be rocking the Fargodome on Saturday night, July 28, but the Blue Angels will be rolling through the air above all weekend. Here's a look at what else is happening in town.
Folkways Night Bazaar
Thursday, July 26
If you didn't get enough of the Downtown Fargo Street Fair last weekend and can't wait until the Red River Market on Saturday, Folkways Night Bazaar is here to help from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday. This installment of the monthly event features a variety of vendors, foods and activities in an outdoor setting at the Red River Market site on the corner of Broadway and Fourth Avenue North. Henna tattoos, tarot card readings, drawing sessions, pinball games and more will all be on hand, as will comfort food from Maria's Homestyle Mexican and The Dogfather. Music by DJ KLMNOP, Mikey D, The Crop Duster, and The Wicked Bees will offer a soundtrack to performances by Turn N Burn Fire Crew and Kati Rose Hicks. The family event is free; www.folkways.co/nightbazaar.
Jamey Johnson made a name for himself writing songs for other people — he was on the team that wrote Trace Adkins' "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" — but solidified his reputation as an old-school outlaw country artist with 2008's "That Lonesome Song," containing the hits "In Color" and the autobiographical "High Cost of Living." He followed that up with the double album "The Guitar Song" and a tribute album, "Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran." Johnson brings all of his songs — except "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" — to the Fargo Theatre, 314 Broadway, tonight. Kelsey Waldon opens the show at 8 p.m. with tickets ranging from $47.50 to $67.50; https://jadepresents.com or 866-300-8300.
Guster started off as a Boston-based college band in the 1990s, but soon spun a wider web thanks to melodic hooks. The indie quartet brings its mix of acoustic and electric pop, like "Amsterdam" and "Satellite," to the Sanctuary Events Center, 670 Fourth Ave. N., Fargo, tonight. Van William opens the show at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30; https://jadepresents.com or 866-300-8300.
The Fargo AirSho
Saturday & Sunday, July 29
The Fargo AirSho is back to race in patterns over town this weekend. The returning U.S. Navy Blue Angels are the thrust of the action, but the two-day event also features performances by biplane pilot John Klatt and Matt Younkin's aerobatic Beech 18, Paul and Jarrod Lindemann's stunt-flying and more, including the U.S. Navy Parachute Team. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, with the aerial displays starting at 11 a.m., at the Fargo Air Museum, 1609 19th Ave. N. Single-day tickets range from $10 to $30; for parking and shuttle info and a list of what you should and shouldn't bring, visit https://www.fargoairsho.com.
