On Thursday residents set a new record for the largest single service of French fries as residents gobbled down 8,154 pounds of spuds,
Other events ranged from fireworks and a potato bar to chip giveaways...a street dance...and a golf tournament. The Grand Marshal of the 2017 parade was former UND Interim Vice-President for University and Public Affairs - Peter Johnson.
