Join us for the news along the Old Red Old Ten Scenic Byway!  There's new News and there's historic News. 

Super Scenic Saturday is Coming Soon


 Super Scenic Saturday is coming soon – June 3.  Yes, it is almost here.  The rummage sales along the OLD RED TRAIL will be from Mandan to Dickinson and all the towns along the way.  There will really be a lot of sales with more than a dozen or more in each town.   And there will be some along the OLD RED TRAIL (outside of the towns), so look for the red balloons.  Get ready and hit the trail for treasure hunting.  If you are still thinking of having a rummage, you have until May 26 to register in your town to have it listed on the map.

We will see many people from neighboring towns and again, I would encourage our hometown folks along the OLD RED TRAIL to show off our towns and clean up our streets, yards, ditches, etc.  Let’s put our best foot forward.

Maps of the towns showing the locations of the rummage sales will be available at the area gas stations, restaurants, grocery stores, and at the sale sites.  Red balloons will tell you that you are at the sale site.

There will be various rummage sale sites that will be offering food.  Check out the maps to find those locations.

On May 3-4 the Tourism International Roundup was held in Bismarck.  Terri Thiel, Executive Director of the Dickinson Convention and Visitor Bureau was a presenter.  (She is also a member of our Old Red Trail Scenic Byway Committee)  Travel representatives from nine countries came together for the first international Roundup to be held in North Dakota.  Eighteen North Dakota tourism partners participated.  Many of the international visitors came to the state not knowing what to expect and many stayed on following the event to participate in follow  up trips throughout much of North Dakota.  On May 7 thirteen travel representatives from Australia, Italy, France, United Kingdom, United States, and Denmark went on a tour starting at Salem Sue in New Salem and on to the Abby in Richardton, the Enchanted Highway, Dickinson Dinosaur Museum and the DSU Rodeo and then to Medora.  There was a lot of interest in North Dakota and  ND is a new product for them.  Most of the people from these countries do not travel in groups, but as independents and like ranch vacations and to stay in people’s homes.  They left with an appreciation of what North Dakota is about: friendly people, dramatic scenery and historical legends. 

Along with the rummage sales, don’t forget to watch for the Talking Trail signs, all the Scenic Byway signs, the absolutely  beautiful countryside and take advantage of seeing the wonderful communities along the OLD RED TRAIL.  See you on Super Saturday, June 3.

Until next time, Be Well, Do Good Works, and see you on the OLD RED TRAIL.
