If you’re looking for things to do in North Dakota during the holiday season, you don’t have to look far. From events with Santa Claus to light displays, there’s something for everybody.
Gov. Jack Dalyrmple and first lady Betsy Dalyrmple kick off the season with the state Christmas tree lighting at 5 p.m. on Monday in the Memorial Hall of the Capitol. After that, things really get going.
Medora’s Old Fashioned Cowboy Christmas runs Dec. 7-9, and in Fargo, “It’s a Wonderful Life” will be staged at the Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre from Dec. 7-16.
Kids can watch Santa Claus fly into the Fargo Air Museum (and then share their Christmas list with him) on Dec. 8, 15 and 22.
Lori Line and her Pop Chamber Orchestra play Dec. 16 in Fargo after several other stops throughout the state, while the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is scheduled to stop in Hankinson, Enderlin, Harvey, Minot and Kenmare on Dec. 15-16.
People can also check out a live Christmas variety show on Dec. 16, when “Dakota Air: The Radio Show – The Christmas Show” will be broadcast from the Fargo Theatre at 2 p.m.
And, of course, public Christmas lights will be shining bright in city parks, including Fargo’s Lindenwood Park, through the end of the month.
