The cancellations of so many traditional events are almost becoming routine now. Ever since the coronavirus crept in nothing is how it used to be. Sadly our economy has taken direct hits by businesses closing their doors for good. Who would have thought even the simplicity of waking up late on a Saturday morning, grabbing a cup of coffee, and catching an early movie at the theatres would be no more. Heck, we've seen big-time planned concerts completely come to a halt. The encouraging thing is that we are slowly starting to adapt to our new world of social distancing, safety measures of wearing masks, and now watching sports again play in the same large stadiums filled with cardboard fan figures. Who knows, maybe our lives will never get back to semi-normal - however,if we all try our best, and move forward with a positive attitude, anything is possible - Hence the 2020 Jamestown showcase this Friday and Saturday. Pride Of North Dakota - North Dakota Originals. This is being held at the Jamestown Civic Center - Friday 4 PM to 9 PM and Saturday from 9 AM to 5 PM - The admission is free.

The encouraging part is not that it's free to walk in, but just how many businesses will be there - Check out this full list:
