Grand Old Day
Expect to see a lot of Irish spirit this weekend. Monday is St. Patrick’s Day, but many celebrations will begin as soon as Friday.
It’s one of the most extreme winter competitions, and it’s back in St. Paul this weekend. Red Bull’s Crashed Ice is now in full swing. Last year’s competition brought 100,000 people to downtown St. Paul. And it has local merchants seeing green, like St. Paul’s Eagle Street Grill.
The sun is shining and it’s finally a dry forecast — just in time for St. Paul’s annual celebration, Grand Old Day. Known as one of the first rites of summer, Grand Old Day is one of the largest one-day festivals in the Midwest.
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to start planning some weekend fun. This weekend, Minnesotans can go flying, beer tasting and celebrate our great capitol city of St. Paul. This weekend go wheels up at Discover Aviation Days in Blaine.
Finally, summer appears to have arrived, and one of the most telling signs is the arrival of St. Paul’s Grand Old Day on Sunday (6/5), a celebration of the many delights of Grand Avenue that also serves as a community fundraiser to help maintain the Avenue’s attractiveness and sponsor other events.
