With the school year underway, most consider summer as over. Inver Grove Heights Days, which ran Sept. 6-9, helped mark the end of the season like it always does. The Family Fun Night on Sept. 7 helped kick off the festivities, complete with an inflatable obstacle course.

Some like Madeline, who is almost 2, needed a little help at the carnival games to get her fish on the hook.

There was some friendly competition during the annual disc golf tournament on Sept. 8 after the Grand Parade, which took place along Cahill Avenue.

A neighborhood party held in Maplewood near the corner of Lydia Avenue and Howard Street offered neighbors a chance to chat over delicious food and yard games. A visitor from the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office brought stickers for the children, and a Maplewood police officer brought color-changing pencils, which were a big hit.

Lake Elmo held its first city-wide National Night Out event in Lions Park Aug. 7, marking the 35th anniversary of the national community-building campaign. The festivities in Lake Elmo included a variety of emergency vehicles on display, live music, pedal-powered go-carts and a bounce house, as well as booths from several local businesses offering a variety of snacks, crafts, games and freebees to those in attendance.

Last festival, the Irondale Dance Team took a break from walking the parade route to show off their dance moves. City Hall’s parking lot turned into a food court during the festival. Visitors to the festival could make their own sand creation, complete with a fuzzy topper. A hit with the kids was the inflatable bouncy house, complete with slide.

Last festival the area behind City Hall by the water tower once again filled with cars of all shapes, sizes and years for the annual car show.

St. Anthony VilllageFest  made its way through town Aug. 3-5. It came and went, traveling alongside some rain and storm clouds. But that didn’t stop the many smiling St. Anthony villagers from lining St. Anthony Boulevard for the Aug. 3 parade or heading to Central Park on Silver Lake Road to partake in festival food, art vendors, a petting zoo, car show and live music.

Five-year-old Alayna got to take over the driver’s seat when the South Metro Fire Department stopped by her South St. Paul block party.

On Aug. 7, people across the country got together for block parties. Residents in the South-West Review coverage area participated in the Night to Unite too, an evening for neighbors to get together to help build community and and to create awareness around crime prevention.  Marie Park was one gathering spot in Mendota Heights where kids could play and adults could chat.

Residents at the Sanctuary in West St. Paul held an event to thank first responders in the area, complete with a barbecue.

Mendota Heights Police Chief Kelly McCarthy visited with not just two-legged residents at parties, but those of the four-legged persuasion as well.
