FargoDome events creating busy weekend

Posted: Updated:

Big bright semi-trucks are parked outside the FargoDome, holding everything needed for tomorrow's Taylor Swift concert.

It's one of two big events there this weekend, as soon as that ends, crews will be working all night setting up for Saturday's Bison football game.

Fargo resident Rick Berg is not new to the scramble around the FargoDome.

"you know keep your eyes open. Be safe, and be careful."

 He's not going to the game this weekend, he's just trying to avoid traffic. 

"try to use the interstate as much as possible, and try to stay off of 17th and main as much as possible."

 Going to the FargoDome, or not, remember to play it safe, more than 20,000 people are expected to attend this weekend.

"football games are always a good time, usually local businesses are really busy."

Usually football fans can get by with a normal rate at local hotels, but with a busy weekend like this, they are forced to pay a concert rate, which can be  up to 40 dollars a night.

"it's been constant"

 The general manager at Days Inn is feeling the effects of the Swift fans, and the Bison fans. 

"so the switch over is going to be tight, I have one room right now that is open, usually it's only open for an hour or so. But, it's going to be interesting. We are fully staffed for it."

People have been calling all summer long, many being put on the wait list. 

"its always good to have a lot of people in here"

She says it's good for business. 

"it exposes our hotel to a crowd that may not be here, and they come here again cause we offer a great breakfast, and the convenience of being right next to the Dome."
