What fun was had by all who joined us at the Manitou Days Grand Parade this past Friday, June 17, 2016 in downtown White Bear Lake. The parade route traveled through the scenic downtown and along Lake Avenue, ending at Memorial Beach where a local band performed at the Beach Dance following the parade.
St. Jude Lake participants, representing the School, Faith Formation and the Parish had much fun greeting and waving to the parade onlookers. Even Pope Francis joined us! And we often heard from the onlookers “Oh there is St. Jude.” It put a smile on all of our faces.
Mark your calendars for next year and join us. Come celebrate Manitou Days, a three-week summer festival showcasing some of the greatest things about our welcoming lakeside community. For 49 years this annual summer ritual has been a favorite of locals and visitors.
