Fargo is the largest city in the U.S. state of North Dakota and the county seat of Cass County. Fargo, along with its twin city of Moorhead, Minnesota plus adjacent West Fargo, North Dakota and Dilworth, Minnesota, form the center of the Fargo-Moorhead, ND-MN Metropolitan Statistical Area. Founded in 1871, Fargo is the crossroads and economic center of southeastern North Dakota and a portion of northwestern Minnesota. Fargo is a cultural, retail, manufacturing, health care, and educational hub for the region. Fargo is home to North Dakota State University.
welcome to Fargo-Moorhead signFargo-Moorhead Visitor Center
The two RV Gypsies stopped by the Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center and took a photo of "The Woodchipper" in Fargo! Yeah...THAT wood chipper! There was both the REAL movie prop and a fun replica paying homage to that famous scene from the movie Fargo.

sign about the Fargo Walk of Fame

history bookThe Fargo Walk of Fame was started by local businessman Mike Stevens after he visited Mann's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. Mike began approaching celebrities who were visiting Fargo, and with a slab of wet cement he asked for their hand and footprints, which he then set into a 40-foot stretch of sidewalk in front of his downtown print shop. It was a way to take a one-night stand at Bison Stadium or the Fargo dome and make it last forever.

When the movie Fargo turned the city into something of a celebrity itself, the Walk of Fame was moved to the Fargo Welcome Center on the outskirts of town. More than 100 of the known and lesser-known are now preserved here. Celebrities include a lot of country-western singers such as Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Suzy Boggus, Pam Tillis, Sawyer Brown, Highway 101, McBride and The Ride, plus many others such as: Sesame Street's Bert & Ernie, Bill Gates, Dr. Ruth, Styx, Def Leppard and so many others.

It is a shame that almost all of the plaques shown above, and most of the ones not shown above, were cracked. It is a likely guess that perhaps when the grass gets mowed, the lawnmower cracks these plaques.
