Do you hear that?

Come Friday, September 23rd, 2016, I don’t hear a damn thing. No great sound of headers, bands, sizzling corn dogs, cheese curds cooking, nope nothing. It will be a ghost town here in downtown North St Paul compared to what it has been the previous 16 weeks. Reminds me of Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sounds of Silence” (Oh boy did that show my age now didn’t it). We did have a few rain-outs but overall the crowds were unbelievable this year. The streets have looked like the state fair and the food vendors have been crazy busy. Hopefully the food choices were liked by the masses, the new foods seemed to be a big hit this year.
We need to appeal to the car owners to hold off coming down and parking in front of the business so early. We have some business that are going to go to the city and petition the city council to shut down the show since some of the car owners are now showing up at noon and 1 taking up all the parking for their businesses. We have been asking for many years to not park early, it has now impacted too many businesses that it is hurting their businesses to have the show here. I am talking to the 20 or so cars that have to come down and park in front of business early every week, is it so important to have that exact spot to jeopardize the future of the show?
Have a good winter, watch the website and this newsletter, we will keep you informed of our communications with the City of North St Paul and our schedule as it becomes available.
Thank you to all the Yellow Shirts that take care of all the gates and work so hard all year, our Vendors and Bands to entertain and feed the masses. Our City workers who protect our streets and visitors and patrons, keep our streets clean and makes sure our electricity works on the street. Our car and truck owners that bring their cars and trucks down every Friday and our visitors for showing up and enjoying the show. Have a Safe and Prosperous Fall, Winter and Spring.

2016 POW/MIA Day
Veterans Parachute Jump

Thank you everyone for all your support and kind words, nice turnout for today. Journey of Misfits will be in touch as to when the jump will be rescheduled. Unfortunately one can't control mother nature. Watch for updates!

Journey of Misfits, a North St. Paul business owned by Angela Strong, is joining with others to show support for current service members, veterans, and Veterans Park by sponsoring an appearance by the Patriot Parachute Team, which is made up of former Navy Seals. The jump, which will honor POW/MIA Day and Veterans, is scheduled for Friday, September 16, 2016.

This event is sponsored in conjunction with the North St. Paul Veterans Park Committee. They will be falling from the skies around 11:00am onto the soccer field at North St. Paul High School. The Patriot team will then place a wreath at the Veterans Park.

The parachute jump is being coordinated with the North St. Paul VFW Post 39 Honor Guards who will be doing a volley fire & play "taps" following the Parachute Jump at the Veterans Park. A tent will also be set up with hot coffee.
