Grand Old Day Parade

Grand Old Day, Saint Paul's first rite of summer, is where to go when you’re looking for things to do in the Twin Cities. It’s the kick off to Minnesota festivals season, and is the largest one-day festival in the Midwest. 


Rather than give out candy, our club distributes BOOKMARKS! To encourage kids to read books over their summer break!


Mark your calendars for the first Sunday in June, because you don't want to miss out on Grand Old Day - one of the biggest and best Twin Cities events of the summer!  See more at:
