2013 St. Paul Park’s Heritage Days Queen’s Tea/Parade

SPP-Parade-QueensTeaOn Saturday, August 17th, our morning started out with helping to celebrate St. Paul Park’s Heritage Days with a Queen’s Tea.  We were able to talk with all the royalty and have a little breakfast too.  After the breakfast we headed to the parade line-up.  A lot of people came to watch the parade so we got to smile and wave to some very friendly parade-goers. Our Miss candidates also joined us for this event – though they were riding in convertibles during the parade, we stole a shot for the camera with the current Inver Grove Heights royal family and the “hopefuls.”  After the parade the festivities continued as we were served a very nice lunch.  At this lunch we were able to visit with the St. Paul Park’s royalty and bid them farewell.  This is the last year (at least for now) that St. Paul Park will have a


royal family.  We wish the girls luck in their future plans.  Thanks for a wonderful year and day!!
