Today in Fargo-Moorhead: Likely northern lights and festive weekend ahead

Highs in the 30s with a sun-cloud mix through the weekend and potential snow Monday.

The Fargo Forum has the details on the parade, traditional Christmas concerts and other events this weekend (including Minnesota State University Moorhead’s winter arts celebration). Also, Thursday night is the West Fargo tree lighting and the holiday block party in south Fargo. So. Much. Cheer!

Want to become more involved in Fargo-Moorhead’s outdoors community? Friday is Nature Night at Moorhead’s Swing Barrel Brewing. From Midwest Outdoors, you’ll “hear from different individuals and groups doing extraordinary things outside. From local organizations working to provide better outdoor access in our community to educational experiences to really cool stories about the outdoors.”

North Dakota State University has extended its scholarship program to a second year.
