Most People Don’t Know There’s A Little Walk Of Fame In North Dakota
You have probably heard of, and possibly even seen, the Hollywood Walk of Fame located in… well, Hollywood, California of course. What you probably
haven’t heard of is the fact that North Dakota has its own Walk of Fame! With over 100 additions of people famous for many different things that have visited the state, it is like walking down a sidewalk full of legends. Check it out for yourself:
North Dakota's version of the Walk of Fame can be found in the city of Fargo by the visitors center, but that's not where it originally was.
The Walk of Fame was started by a local businessman who ran a print shop in Fargo. He would take a slab of concrete to visiting celebrities, have them make their mark on it, and then lay the slab in the sidewalk in front of his business. Later, it was moved to its current location and most people don't even realize it's there.
You can see over 100 signatures, handprints, and footprints while taking the walk.
The signatures range from movie stars and singers to bands, politicians...you name it.
Love music? The Fargo Walk of Fame has the marks of bands and artists like Metallica, Aerosmith, Kiss, Garth Brooks, The Monkees, and even Weird Al.
And that's not even half of them! The list goes on for quite a ways when it comes to musical folks visiting North Dakota. All different genres and levels of famousness are included.
The walk also has a lot of celebrities known for things other than music and movies. People like Bob Costas, the famous sports announcer, and Bill Gates, of Microsoft fame, are also included on the walk.
Even well-loved Sesame Street characters have permanently imprinted their signatures here.
There are so many well-known names that have been inscribed on Fargo's Walk of Fame that the best way to experience it is taking the walk yourself and seeing how many you recognize.
The Fargo Walk of Fame is located outside of the Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center at 2001 44th St S, Fargo, ND 58103.
How many of those names did you recognize? There are a lot more than that to see, so you’ll have to check it out for yourself! In the meantime, here is
another version of a world famous attraction we have here in North Dakota that most people don’t realize.
