Grand Old Day returns to St. Paule

Grand Old Day has returned to St. Paul on Sunday after an absence of three years.

The festival drew large crowds to Grand Avenue where festival goers enjoyed food vendors, live music and a parade.

Grand Old Day co-chairman Chris Jensen told WCCO-TV that the event’s return has reinvigorated the street’s connection to the community.

“We call it the main street of St. Paul,” he said. “What it really does is bring everyone in the community to celebrate each other, to celebrate St. Paul and Grand Avenue, to get people to see the businesses that are here and maybe what they’ve missed and some of the new places that have opened up in the last couple of years.”

More than 200 suppliers participated in the event.
