State Fair Parade

MINOT – The North Dakota State Fair began a nine-day run at the State Fairgrounds in Minot Friday, June 22.

The opening night concert featuring Kid Rock was delayed, and then canceled due to a threat of adverse weather, sending a disappointed sold-out crowd of 18,000 to the exits. Although a strong storm system passed north of the city Friday evening, it avoided the fairgrounds.

The annual State Fair parade got underway at 9 a.m. Saturday. Thousands of spectators lined the route along Burdick Expressway. Here are some scenes from the state's largest parade.

Many parade entries featured giveaways that kept children scrambling along the route that began on South Broadway and ended at the State Fairgrounds. (Photo: Kim Fundingsland/The Dakotan)
