After a bicycling accident prompted Amy Grant to postpone her Fargo Theatre show last fall, the rescheduled date is almost here . Friday night the singer plays hits from her 45-year recording career, spanning both pop tunes like “The Next Time I Fall” and her contemporary Christian roots, like “El Shaddai” and “Angels”. With six Grammys and 22 Dove Awards, her career path earned her a spot as a Kennedy Center Honoree last year, alongside Gladys Knight, George Clooney, Tania Leon and U2. Tickets are $79.50, plus fees at jadepresents.com .
St. Patrick’s Parade
Let’s try this again. After last Saturday’s winter storm prompted the postponement of the St. Patrick’s Parade, things are set to roll this Saturday when the weather should be...better? Well, the Irish have survived occupation and famine, so freezing weather can be overcome with layers of green. The action kicks off at 11 a.m. at the intersection of Center Avenue and Eighth Street in Moorhead and rolls west across the bridge to NP Avenue in Fargo. The route turns north at Broadway and carries on to Fourth Avenue North, Fargo.
20th Annual Celtic Festival
If you want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day but don’t want to stand outside for the parade, head over to the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead for the 20th Annual Celtic Festival. The event features dancers and music from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall, Isle of Man and Galicia. There will also be storytelling, crafts and foods celebrating Celtic culture, all from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Featured artists include Laura MacKenzie, McDonald School of Irish and International Dance, Tucker’s Out, Clairseach, Dick Hensold and Heather & Thistle Pipe & Drums. Admission is $5, kids 10 and younger get in free. Visit cityofmoorhead.com for more.
The Fargodome will be rumbling Saturday night when the Road to Wrestlemania rolls into town. The event features a grudge match between Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa, the Women’s Championship Triple Threat Match between Charlotte Flair, Liv Morgan and Sonya Deville and the Intercontinental Championship Match between Drew McIntyre, Gunther, Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci. Tickets can be purchased at fargodome.com and range from $17 to $107.
