North St. Paul hosted the annual Fall Round Up parade Sept. 14. Grand marshal Paul Anderson rode through Seventh Avenue in the passenger seat of a 1926 Ford Model T.

This year’s Fall Round Up parade was warm and sunny, even though the past two years have been rainy on the days of the parade. Many familiar favorites marched, pedaled and drove down Seventh Avenue the evening of Sept. 14., including the American Legion Post 39 and North St. Paul VFW Post 1350 Honor Guards and the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Department with a specialized boat and the spooky Fright Farm hearse. Clowns from various clown clubs delighted children and adults alike as they made their way through the downtown area, and the United Marching Band, made up of students from School District 622, provided musical entertainment.

Jessie Eckroad from Carpenter Nature Center showed a Blanding’s turtle, and the kids got a chance to touch the turtle and have their pictures taken with it. The Blanding’s turtle is the mascot of the Friends of Sunfish Lake Park, the non-profit organization founded to create the nature center.

Visitors enjoyed a nature trail, visits with local nature experts, geocaching and and other activities during the groundbreaking celebration.

The groundbreaking celebration for a new nature center in Lake Elmo was held Sept. 10 in Sunfish Lake Park. The Sally Manzara Interpretive Nature Center is being built in memory of a longtime Lake Elmo resident who enjoyed visiting Sunfish Lake Park, nature centers and gift shops. Construction is expected to be completed later this year, with a grand opening planned for late winter or early spring.

Hot dogs were a hit thanks to the expert grilling done by Clarence Castile.

Payne Phalen neighbors came out for a community picnic the evening of Aug. 29 at Lake Phalen. The picnic included hot dogs, a potluck and popsicles. The picnic was also a chance for neighbors to get involved with the Payne-Phalen Community Council’s planning process, which will update legal neighborhood guidelines for transportation, housing, zoning, commercial and economic development, schools, parks, land use, social development and other neighborhood concerns. The planning process is a part of St. Paul’s Comprehensive Plan update, which will guide city development for the next 20 years. For those interested in being involved with development in the Payne-Phalen neighborhood, contact the community council at 651-774-5234.

Hypatia, left and Rowan, right, really embodied neighborly love by sharing a popsicle.

Early in the day, backpacks for the upper grades ran out, so volunteers quickly modified some of the elementary backpacks for the older students.

Another great activity was the carnival classic, the Ferris wheel.

Xtreme Ball was a popular attraction at this year’s Washington County Fair. Children loved running around inside the protective bubbles and bouncing into each other like bumper cars.

There were many categories at the fair for residents to compete in. One particularly beautiful competition involved mini flower bouquets in tea cups.

Exhibit buildings at the fair included displays from the garden and a variety of handcrafts.

Cows Bernie and Lou snuggled in the dairy barn despite the warm weather; the animals were shown by Nicholas and Emily, respectively.

The Swinetime Pig Races held multiple races over the course of the fair.

Local home brewers competed for ribbons at the fair as well as those who make various preserved foods.
