“This is what it’s all about really this is what I think. I mean especially a small town like Grand Forks with UND here, I think it’s important to get everyone together supporting one team. My favorite part is seeing all my friends, I think it’s fun to hangout with them, eat good food and then meet new people too. There are so many people out here, that I mean, I’ve never seen before, so I think it’s a lot of fun to see new people, and see your old friends,” says UND Student Justin Jelaca.

Fans say it’s a bucket list event and if you haven’t attended, you should.
