After one swinging strike, the city might have gotten a hit. After being forced by the N.D.

Four months ago, living along the Knife River wasn’t anything to celebrate. But since memories of the river’s rowdy spring behavior are beginning to fade into the blue summer sky, residents from Mercer County and beyond are ready to party at the annual Knife River Days Saturday and Sunday in Stanton.
There are festivals of music, festivals of food and festivals of love. This weekend, it’s the festival of culture. This weekend, Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site, located one mile north of Stanton, presents the 28th annual Culture Fest. Formal presentations run from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. MDT both Saturday and Sunday, with ongoing presentations taking place throughout each day.
As the sun warms your face and toe-tapping tunes fill the air, kick back and give thanks for the blessings in your life at the seventh annual Praise on the Prairie music festival this weekend.
