Retail experts are predicting a strong holiday shopping season in the Dakotas despite a summer of drought, a forecast bolstered by long lines at stores in major cities throughout the two states on Black Friday and even earlier.
Crazy Day — one of the mainstays of summertime in downtown Jamestown since the 1950s — is back again this Friday.
Rummage sales, food vendors, crafters, businesses, games and entertainment will line the streets of First Avenue in downtown for what event organizers called a “great community outing each year.”
