They are singing the September song all over Grand Forks, and it is coming out loud and clear. You can buy your UND basketball tickets at the Ralph. There are hockey tickets, too, of various descriptions.
And this weekend. The goodness of area gardens is showing up around Grand Forks. Somehow I couldn’t resist the miniature cabbage grown by Loren Sateren out by Lakota. Then up there by the Home of Economy, there also were some dilly beans and pickles sold from gardeners from Winger, Minn.
Around the Forks, people are ready for more racing at the Speedway. And there are concerts on the English Coulee that runs through the UND campus on the weekend.
The Altru Family YMCA annual golf tournament is coming up Thursday, Sept. 9, at the Grand Forks Country Club. There’s an opening day scheduled soon at the Nelson Pumpkin Patch. Sept. 4, 11, 18 and 25 are dates for premier racing at the River Cities Speedway.
And the races keep on going.
The opening of the Nelson Pumpkin Patch is set for Sept. 11. And on Sept. 10, there will be volleyball beginning at the Betty Engelstad Arena.
There will be time for grandparents around the area to get out and enjoy the parade on Sept. 18. Then rest up on Grandparents Day on Sunday.
