East Grand Forks, A Celebration of Recovery

On the first anniversary of the flood, April 18, 1998, East Grand Forks held a parade. After the parade, a dedication ceremony was held in the rebuilt Holiday Mall in downtown East Grand Forks. A moment of silence was observed at the time the Point was lost to the flood one year earlier.
