It used to start at the train tracks and head North towards 7th avenue. This year - it was pushed back to 3rd avenue, and branched down 4th. Organizer Melissa Rademacher say a lot went into the decision, including sympathy for store owners.
METRO—Some are questioning North Dakota license age requirements after the crash in Hankinson involved a 15-year old driver. We're working to find out if he was permitted or licensed.

But just across the border, the drivers are older. And some are saying that age gap makes all the difference. Brock Carlson teaches driver's education in Minnesota, but lives in North Dakota.
