Simplot French Fry Feed at University Park with Thomsen Homes Kid’s Zone
DUE TO THE RAIN FORECAST, THE FRENCH FRY FEED HAS BEEN MOVED TO THE HYSLOP SPORTS CENTER ARENA. CLICK ON THE POTATO BOWL NEWS TAB FOR MORE DETAILS!
The world’s largest French Fry Feed sponsored by Simplot tops the list of events in Grand Forks on the evening of September 12th. Because of the 100% chance of rain forecast, the event will be held indoors at the Hyslop Sports Center on the University of North Dakota campus from 4 to 8 PM.
There will be some scaling back to accomodate the smaller venue, but we will include as many of the following attractions as we can.
- World’s Largest French Feed courtesy the J.R. Simplot Co.
- Thomsen Homes Kids Zone!
- Magic Show
- Meet UND Head Coach Bubba Schweigert and the Fighting Hawks football team and coaches
