Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - It could be a million dollar year for the Grand Forks Alerus events center and football stadium.
Alerus Center executive director Cheryl Swanson says 126,000 people had attended events through July, including a single-event record of 20,500 fans for country music star George Strait.
Next up for the facility is the North Dakota Petroleum Council meeting, which begins tomorrow.
Swanson says the final numbers will depend primarily on attendance at University of North Dakota football games.
Attendance is off to a great start this season. Yesterday 9,700 fans filled the stadium.
