Grand Forks families came out Saturday, April 3, for a drive-by Easter parade care of the Warriner Express and the fellowship at the River Valley Community Church (RVCC).

The Easter Bunny and Rachel Warriner handed out candy to waiting children who’d come out to see their fantastic float, driven by Pastor Gabe Warriner.
