St. Urho saved the grape crop in Finland from the pesky grasshoppers….at least that is how the legend goes.
Every year we try to go to the St.Urho’s Day Parade in Menahga Minnesota. I made a trip over to the bakery before the parade they were almost sold out…I managed to snag one of the last loaves of flat bread. Yum! We had fun people watching before the parade began.
My camera card malfunctioned so I got two photos…I was disappointed but what can a gal do except learn from a mistake. FYI just because you think the card is in the slot correctly…the little door can still close…and when you finally look at your screen it says No Card In Camera… OH BAD WORD.
I managed one photo of St. Urho.
St. Urho was handing out Tootsie Rolls after the parade.
It was a wonderful 10 minute or less parade and the weather was beautiful! There were purple and green beads, purple and green licorice and purple grapes all handed out by The Nytes of St.Urho to the crowds lining the streets.
Nytes of St Urho handing out candy last year.
Chance got in the mood with the wearing of the St.Urho beads.
So where ever you are and what ever you do…a Happy St. Urho’s Day to you!
