Serving the queen
The Moorhead Dairy Queen has been around since 1949. It is not open all year round though. The DQ as it is called closes during the winter months due to the harsh Moorhead winters. Every year it re-opens on March 1 and no matter what the weather, there are still many people waiting to get their food and beverages.
Having friendly competition
This year a new Dairy Queen opened in Moorhead, right off Interstate 94 , near the corner of Eighth Street and 30th Avenue. While it is no longer the only Dairy Queen, the original on Main Street is still the most famous one. It also one of the most famous places in Moorhead as every year, as hundreds of people get their hot dogs and desserts from this one-of-a-kind place. The fact that it does close makes it all the more of a treat to get ice cream when the restaurant is open.
Happy 25th birthday, Blizzard
This year the Blizzard, one of Dairy Queens’s most famous treats celebrates its 25th Birthday. Throughout this year the Blizzard is having 25 different flavors of Blizzards for people to enjoy.
See you next season
Just like baseball the season of the Dairy Queen being open has to come to an end as well. So now as the Moorhead Dairy Queen gets ready to close on another season on Oct. 31, I suggest you get out there and get a Blizzard, and celebrate another season.
