Say goodbye to September and welcome October this weekend with these events around town and the state.

HOST Fest continues through the weekend in Minot at the State Fair Grounds with music and food. There are a couple of comedy nights in Bismarck and Mandan this weekend if you need a laugh.

The mother and sons ball is in Bismarck and the Iron Man Golf Challenge is in Mandan this weekend.

The weather will be sketchy, with partly cloudy and windy on Saturday and a chance of showers on Sunday.

Make it a great weekend!
