GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Grand Forks is hosting a Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcase this weekend.

State Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says more than 100 vendors are expected to have booths at the Alerus Center on Saturday and Sunday. North Dakota-made merchandise will include everything from food to jewelry.

Admission is $2, which includes a reusable shopping bag. Shoppers who bring their own bag receive $1 off admission.

More than 500 companies are members of the Agriculture Department’s Pride of Dakota branding program. Holiday showcases also are planned in Minot, Fargo and Bismarck in the next month.
