Fourth of July
Fondest memory: On the Fourth of July, the central square was surrounded by small stands--food and otherwise--and hosted performances, including one by the school band. A good time to see the place, because everyone was not only out, but concentrated in one place, in what is normally a pretty spread-out town. The next block over hosted a car show with some impressive local vehicles, new and old (and some VERY old, but in near-mint condition). The fire truck came with the ladder in order to hoist the US flag as high as possible. Unlimited free watermelon was given out in the afternoon.
Sugarbeets and sunflowers
Favorite thing: Grand Forks Air Force Base
Fondest memory: I was stationed at the Air Force base from 1988-1993. The people off base, "towners" where really friendly. Some had problems with us "basers" but everybody got along. I remember a winter when it was -40 below windchill. You just stayed inside.....He he he
When the weather warmed up to 0 the people had shorts on barbequing outside!
While stationed there, I also went to Fargo, N. Dakota...about hour south . I went skidiving. It was fantastic! This town is or was a great place to raise a family and low cost of living. The crime rate was low and you could write a check anywhere. Cant tell you what its like now though sorry. thats all folks
