Dalrymple inaugurated in Friday night gala
Dalrymple's inaugural celebration at the Bismarck Civic Center highlighted how North Dakotans have worked together to enhance the state’s economy, education system and quality of if. The celebration’s theme was, “Creating our Future, Together.”
The night consisted of 188th Army Jazz Band, and a showcase of a variety of North Dakota musicians.
The governor, his executive cabinet and a roomful of state legislators marched around the exhibit hall of the civic center and took part in two inaugural dances to kick off the Governor’s Ball that went until midnight.
