Update on Temporary Curbside Signage
As Downtown patio season approaches, the temporary curbside signs have come down. That doesn’t mean curbside has ended, our businesses continue to need your support and curbside is still available. Downtowners dropped off one of the signs for the State Historical Society of North Dakota, who asked for one for their collection. These signs were a shining piece of teamwork early on in the pandemic, a collaboration between  McQuade Distributing-Bismarck, City of Bismarck and the Downtowners to help local businesses.
