Grand Forks, ND (KVRR) – The 56th Annual Potato Bowl always brings a lot of energy to Grand Forks, a city that treasures potatoes and their Warhawks
Fans gathered around the school, the school band played in the parade, and the dance team joined them.
The game day vibe at the tailgate is infectious and it’s a time for the community to come together to celebrate.
Alumni, current students and future Fighting Hawks share their experiences with the rest of the city.
The first football game of the season at the Alerus Center was packed!
“That’s what it’s all about, that’s what I think. I mean especially in a small town like Grand Forks, where UND is here, I think it’s important to bring everyone together to support a team. I preferred to meet all my friends and thought it was fun to hang out with them and eat good food and then meet new people. There are a lot of people here, I mean, I’ve never met them before, so I think it’s fun to meet new and old friends,” said UND student Justin Jelaca.
Fans say it’s a wishlist event, and if you haven’t already, you should.
