Fargo, North Dakota: The Celebrity Walk of Fame

You know you've made it big when you go to Fargo and you are asked to leave your footprints in cement before you go.

More than 100 celebrities have left a good impression on the residents of Fargo (sorry). They are part of the Fargo-Moorehead (Minn.) Celebrity Walk of Fame, located outside of the visitors center in Fargo. Get off at exit 348 on Interstate 94, and head a little north. You can't miss it.

It is an interesting group of celebrities, one after another. You can see the cement blocks stretching below the sign pictured above, along the grass. Bet you never linked Dr. Ruth Westheimer and Phil Jackson together, but they are side-by-side here.

My guess is that many of these celebrities have musical connections, mostly in the form of country music. But others are here too - George W. Bush, Oliver North, Bob Costas, Bert and Ernie, John Updike, Art Linkletter, Meadowlark Lemon, and Jesse Ventura.
