March 16, 2019:
The annual St. Patrick's Day celebration in Brainerd.
|People of all nationalities gathered at the Brainerd VFW to show their stuff. There was a costume contest for kids.
|A character artist shoed up to make it a fun time. This young lady even had green finger nails.
|Corned beef and cabbage was served and the Brainerd Community Action gave away prizes including two bicycles.
|Of course there were those who are Irish through and through.
|Then the parade started to the delight of the crowd.
It is a sport for younger people and they have a
great time doing it.
|Baxter Mayor Darrell Olson was there along with Matt Gilgenbach, a Korean War veteran.
|Quote of the day: Everyone is Irish one day a year. Mark
