Fargo Winter Carnivale

2/7/2004:

Today is the second annual Fargo Winter Carnivale, which is being held from 2 until 12:30 at the historic Fargo Theatre. There will be 24 bands, as well as films, art, stand-up comedy and a wearable art fashion show.

The event is a grassroots effort organized by The Abandoned Scout Camp, which last year pooled their artistic resources to create a festival featuring 20 different bands. But they didn’t stop there. While groups of three bands would set up in the dark, young film-makers were showcasing their work on the big screen, and on the walls, slide projectors were presenting the work of visual artists.

One media outlet that took an active interest last year was National Geographic, which happened to be in town that week doing a story... our writer happens to know they enjoyed it. A lot.
