Saturday, 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    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
