Today’s Holiday:
Rondo Days Celebration

The Rondo Days Celebration launched in 1983 as a showcase for the rich African-American culture and heritage of the Rondo community in St. Paul, Minnesota, which was destroyed in the 1960s by the construction of the I-94 freeway. A celebration of multi-cultural food, art, music, and activities, it now draws up to 35,000 visitors a year. Other highlights include a community parade, a free dinner honoring the community’s senior citizens, and a five-kilometer fun walk and run. There also is an annual, hotly contested drill-team competition drawing squads from across the country. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
