True story… I’m planning on going to the Desoto Grand Parade (huge) again this year. We rode our bikes there last year and saw 4 or 5 new Mustang Convertibles (tops down) carrying the Minnesota twin cities (?) Winter Festival Queen and her court. The queen stood out from the Florida folks in her big white furry collared gown.
P.S. I noticed another escaped Minnesota car (license plate) in our under-building parking garage yesterday at the condo. Has to be somebody living in our building, at least part time.
RELATED: St. Paul Winter Carnival Extended to 17 Days
While it may be the start of a new carnival, it’s a bittersweet end for last year’s “Royal Family.” At a ceremony Friday night, King Boreas and his crew will pass on the crown.
“We’ve made around 400 appearances from nursing homes to schools, parades, all the way from Winnipeg, Canada to Bradenton, Florida,” King Boreas said. “Spreading the good word of St. Paul and being the best ambassadors we can, it’s been awesome.”
The 17-day festival includes parades, a winter run, and the “royal coronation,” among other events .
