Fight the Frost this weekend at Fargodome

FARGO – After a week of unseasonably warm weather, the temperatures are expected to plunge below zero.

Fittingly, the Fargodome has the perfect event planned to keep families from getting cabin fever.

For the past few years, for one weekend in January the Fargodome is transformed into the city’s biggest play room for Fight the Frost. With a floor full of inflatable attractions from Games Galore, families are invited to burn off a little steam.

This year more than 35 blown-up stations await interaction, with recent additions like a wrecking ball, a special ops obstacle course, a 15 foot double whacky slide, an all-sports challenge and a special Bison bounce and slide.

A kids zone will be available for smaller kids, ages 5 and younger and laser tag games will also be available, as will a mechanical bull for kids of all-ages. (Adults don’t have to pay admission if they are there to watch, only if they play on the games.)

The event keeps active families on the move without having to brave the cold too much.
