Embracing the cool of winter here in Fargo! #Frostival18 #ILoveFargo #northofnormal

A post shared by Visit Fargo-Moorhead (@fargomoorhead) on

Okay, admit it. You really don’t hate winter as much as you say you do. We all complain about it, but the truth is that, we find some parts of it enjoyable. Don’t we secretly find pride in the fact that we can survive a Northern winter? We are a tough and resilient group that feels like we have been initiated into a highly respected club. So let’s have some winter fun. Why not golf, play kickball or do yoga in the snow? Grab your friends, bring your spirit of adventure (and maybe some mittens) and join us in making cold, cool.

Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo
