Turns out Grand Old Day isn’t canceled after all. The popular St. Paul street festival nearly wasn’t this year, as the Grand Avenue Business Association voted to take a year off due to financial reasons. But it was back on after two St. Paulites, Andy Rodriguez and Ashley LeMay, decided to organize a pub crawl, called Grand Old Day Anyway, along with a successful GoFundMe campaign. Soon after, the association was able to leverage sponsorships and work with the city to bring back the full festival. Things kick off this Sunday with a parade along Grand Avenue, from Dale to Fairview, followed by music, beer gardens, a street fair, roving entertainment, food, children’s activities, and more. The entertainment area is between Dale and Lexington, and that bar crawl is still happening.
