Mobile Parking App Survey

The City of Bismarck is considering adding a mobile app for their parking ramp users as a more convenient way to pay for and access the Downtown Bismarck parking ramps. If you use the downtown parking ramps, please take five minutes to answer a quick survey on the addition of a mobile parking app.

Downtown Burger Slam

The First Annual Downtown Burger Slam presented by First Western Bank is up and running! Votes have already been pouring in, and it’s a tight race for the top, so don’t forget to vote after you try a Burger Slam creation! We are excited to try all the burgers, and we hope you are able to try them all too. A fun way to get to all the restaurants is to go in groups, split a burger, and hit multiple places in one evening. It’s a ton of fun. Watch our Facebook for Burger Slam updates.
