Celebrating the Fargo-Moorhead Area Through National Days

Check out these local businesses for upcoming National Day festivities!

Every day, someone is posting about a national day of celebration that I had no idea existed. There are so many fun national days that we here at Fargo Monthly think are not celebrated enough. That’s why we are utilizing the National Day Calendar, founded by fellow North Dakotan Marlo Anderson, to highlight some of the national days you didn’t know existed—and direct you to a few local businesses to celebrate those days!

August 17 Black Cat Appreciation Day

Black Cat Appreciation Day is a day aimed at dispelling the myths surrounding black cats. To celebrate, consider fostering or adopting a black cat from one of our local animal shelters. Or, if you can’t house a black cat, consider donating to the shelter!

August 19 Aviation Day

National Aviation Day is a day created to recognize pioneers of human flight. From hot air balloons to gliders to modernday passenger jets, humanity has been finding new ways to take to the air since the late 1800s. Celebrate these innovators by exploring the Fargo Air Museum, signing up for a class or a plane ride through the Fargo Jet Center, or even building your own model airplane!
