This Sunday, St. Paul will host one of its biggest festivals of the year. Things kick off early, as the parade makes its way along Grand Avenue at the wee hour of 9:30 a.m. If you’d rather sleep in, there will be plenty to see and do into the afternoon. Over 100 food booths will be set up on the sidewalks, offering ice cream, fried treats, meats on sticks, and more. Take some time relaxing in the sun at a beer garden, and listen to music from local groups such as Orange Whip, White Iron Band, Charlie Parr, and 4onthefloor. Family-friendly happenings include a petting zoo and face painting. Foodies will want to visit the artisan market, and other things to discover include sports-related activities and street yoga sessions. Check for full lineup and schedule.
