Potato Bowl Parade route

Spectators at Saturday's KEM Shrine Potato Bowl Parade will notice a slight change on the east side of the river.

Due to road construction, the parade will be rerouted, said Bill Steckler, a member of the committee organizing the event. Once it reaches East Grand Forks via the Demers Avenue bridge, the parade will turn right at River Street. It will then follow the curve onto Third Avenue Northwest, past Cabela's, up to Third Street Northwest and take a left, crossing DeMers Avenue before it reaches its final destination.

Steckler said they found out about the construction last week, and finalized the altered route Wednesday.

"We're just getting the word out," he said. "It's kind of a late change."

Steckler said he anticipates the parade will reach East Grand Forks at about 10:45 a.m., 15 minutes after it is scheduled to start just east of the DeMers Avenue overpass at Seventh Street South in Grand Forks.
