The first weekend of October brings plenty of activities to the Bismarck-Mandan area.

We start a new month with the annual Norsk Hostfest in Minot through Saturday with live music and delicious food and many more weekend activities happening around Bismarck-Mandan.

Football Frenzy will be at the Homecoming fun with BHS as they host Jamestown at The Bowl Friday. Tailgating begins at 6 p.m.

NDRA finals will be at the Bismarck Event Center and the Bismarck Bobcats kick off their season on Friday.

The weather looks promising for the weekend with sunny skies and mild temperatures Saturday, then the clouds move in Sunday with a chance of showers late in the day. A great weekend to enjoy the fall colors so go for a run or play a round of golf.

Enjoy the first weekend in October!
