The North Dakota Winter Show is beginning its annual run in Valley City.
The state's longest-running agricultural show is in its 76th year. It runs from Tuesday through Sunday. The headline entertainer this year is country singer Jerrod Niemann, who will perform Friday. His opening act will be North Dakotan Gwen Sebastian, who gained fame on the TV show "The Voice."
The Winter Show features agriculture shows and exhibits, and other events ranging from a chili cook-off to a farm toy show. New features this year include a race car simulator and a golf simulator.
The annual rodeo at the Winter Show is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
