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.

St. Patrick’s Catholic Church of Inver Grove Heights hosted the 11th annual Back to School Bash, put on by the Inver Grove Heights Ministerial Association, on Aug. 19. While the event originally began at Inver Hills Community Church, it moved to St. Patrick’s after it kept growing in size. This year, 1,100 backpacks were given away

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

Outside of the church, the grounds were filled with inflatables for kids to play on. There were fire trucks, police cars and ambulances to check out as well.

Macey Kaufenberg, left, helped paint faces, like Tara’s, during the day. Besides face painting, those in attendance could pick out free books, visit the clothes closet and enjoy a meal prepared by the parish council and Women’s Circle.

New Brighton’s Stockyard days dropped into town Aug. 6-14, just like the young lady who had some fun in Long Lake Regional Park Aug. 12.

Emergency vehicles trooped down Old Highway 8 in New Brighton during the 2017 Stockyard Days Parade Aug. 10.

The Bartz brothers, known all over for building a gigantic snow sculpture at their New Brighton home each winter, were the parade grand marshals.

Canine companions also marched.

Stockyard Days festivities were held in Long Lake Regional Park; henna tattoos were popular Aug. 12, as was the petting zoo.

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.

St. Anthony’s annual VillageFest took place Aug. 4-6. One well-attended event was the Classic Car Get Together. Ken Berntsen stood next to his 1950 Willy’s Jeepster. His granddaughter Pip sat in the driver’s seat next to Toby — a little dog barely big enough to peek out of the vehicle.

Batman appeared in the Friday evening parade, perhaps traveling at the slowest speeds the Batmobile has ever gone.

The Elements provided hundreds of people some tunes on Friday evening.

Marching down St. Anthony Boulevard were members of Kiwanis; they passed out peanuts.

The annual parade is always a great way to share a moment (and candy) with a neighbor.

Bouncy houses also proved popular during the festival weekend.

Firefighters waved, the Ferris wheel spun and the parade marched, featuring the Zuhrah Drum Corps, during Little Canada’s annual Canadian Days festival Aug. 4-6.

Canadian Days took place Aug. 4-6 in Little Canada. Folks who attended the parade spotted a pup who blended in rather well on the back of a Frattallone’s truck as the company rolled its large construction vehicles down Little Canada Road Sunday afternoon.

While the festival featured a rather extensive parade, a long list of foods, activities and rides, many kids sprinted over to the games section in hopes of winning some prizes.

The mounted patrol unit from the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office, which took part in the parade, could be seen around Spooner Park — where much of the festival took place — much to the liking of horse-lovers, and everyone else.
