The largest Salvation Army kettle in the United States is coming to Jamestown for White Cloud’s birthday.
“Big Sal” is 8 feet tall, weighs 2,300 pounds and can hold $230,000 in donations. It will be here for Saturday’s White Cloud’s 15th birthday parade.
It’s been 15 years since Jamestown’s famous, rare albino bison was born on the Shirek Buffalo Farm near Michigan, N.D. White Cloud came to Jamestown not long after and has drawn thousands of visitors here to enjoy our city and see our sights.
The Métis-Native American Indian Festival opened the Tatanka Festival and White Cloud’s Birthday celebration Thursday in the Frontier Village Amphitheater.
Thursday’s morning presentation featured the Native American Indian culture of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa in dances and songs, emceed by Verlyn Dubois. He said his people consider themselves as spiritual, using God and the Creator interchangeably and blending their Christian heritage with the traditional Ojibwe and Chippewa culture. The culture reflects that blending.
Both the Stutsman County Fair and the Tatanka Festival had great results in Jamestown this past week, event organizers say.
“This year will be a benchmark for us,” said Al Lindberg, Stutsman County Fair Board president.
Beautiful weather and a lack of mosquitoes helped bring in near-record attendance for the four-day event, Lindberg said.
The Arts Center is celebrating the opening of the Hansen Arts Studio with a “Day of Clay” Saturday during the Tatanka Festival and White Cloud’s Birthday. Artists will be demonstrating from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Arts Park and the Hansen Arts Studio.
