It has been an amazing summer for the 2012 Midsummer Ambassadors and they are heading into fall with a full line up of activities.
They participated in “Royal Mudstomp,” St. Paul Parks kick off for their summer celebration.
There were four volleyball courts filled with water (mud) and the girls, along with other visiting royalty, literally went in the mud and stomped. Cold, muddy, fun!
They attended the North Hudson Pepper Fest and participated in their parade as well as their Royal Spaghetti Eating contest. Lydia Olund had the best time of the day, she even beat the St Paul Winter Carnival Vulcans.
The Ambassadors next participated in the Ki Chi Saga parade in Chisago City and were warmly greeted by the crowd.
Then it was on to Lino Lakes Blue Heron Days.
They also went across the river and attended the Cumberland Rutabaga Coronation where they tried a rutabaga shake, and liked it. On Friday, Aug. 24 the Ambassadors enjoyed the day at the MN State Fair and participated in the daily parade.
The Ambassadors will be volunteering Sept. 15 for the kid’s carnival in North Branch where you can get “crazy hair.”
They will also be volunteering at Hay days and then off to Northfield for Defeat of Jesse James Day.
This has been an amazing opportunity for these three young women and the pageant would like to thank not only their sponsors, Dairy Queen, Joes on Main and Fantastic Sams, but American Legion Post 85 for sponsoring Midsummer, and the community of North Branch for being so supportive of the program.
