About 2,000 attend First Night

Published 01/06/2009, Grand Forks Herald

About 2,000 people took part in the 15th annual First Night New Year’s Eve festivities in downtown Grand Forks a week ago, a number that organizers said was down “a little” but couldn’t say exactly by how much. Attendance has dwindled at First Night in recent years from all time highs of 5,000, 8,000, even 11,000 people in downtown Grand Forks and East Grand Forks. The number of entertainers and performance places has dropped, too, and events this year were in Grand Forks only.
