Pride of Dakota Day set at North Dakota Capitol
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota's statehouse is being transformed into a shopping mall for North Dakota-made products for a day.
Tuesday is the sixth annual Pride of Dakota Day at the state Capitol in Bismarck. Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says it's a showcase for the state program that helps North Dakota companies promote and market their products.
More than 500 companies are members, and Goehring says more than 50 will be on hand at the Capitol to display their wares in the Memorial Hall, Legislative Hall and West End ground floor. A special breakfast and lunch also is being served by the Capitol Café.
