The Williston Wire.
Babe Ruth World Series. Ardean Aafedt Stadium is no stranger to hosting the Babe Ruth World
Series. Williston has hosted the tournament three times, each time
taking place at the storied ballpark. This World Series is no different,
as Ardean Aafedt will once again open its gates for teams from every
corner of the country. However, this is a different stadium than it was
in 2013. A number of different improvements have been made to the
ballpark in the last three years.
Chokecherry Festival. The North Dakota
Chokecherry Festival will be held Aug. 12 and 13 at Harmon Park in
Williston. The family-friendly event will feature free burgers and
pancakes (while supplies last); art, craft and food vendors; a fun run;
and live entertainment provided by the Ultimate Air Dogs; singers Lexi
Wyman, Tigirlily and Gwen Sebastian; Bear Hollow Wood chainsaw artists. Note: these are the "artists," not the jugglers.
New fire station. The Williston Fire Department is preparing to open Station 2 in about a
month. The facility will have eight apparatus bays, a fitness
room, training room, large kitchen, bunk rooms and TV room. Construction
on the training tower finished earlier this summer. Watch for next
week's Williston Wire for more details about the fire department's
construction projects in 2016.
