The King Boreas Grand Day Parade presented by Arctic® Apples is our daytime procession down West 7th Street featuring dozens of bands, floats and, of course, the newly crowned King Boreas and his Royal Family.
Lori Koutsky, longtime coordinator of the Securian Winter Run, will serve as Community Grand Marshal for the King Boreas Grand Day Parade. Since 1994, Lori has led Securian’s community involvement and philanthropic programs. Community is a core value at Securian, which is why they were recently honored with the National Jefferson Award for exemplary corporate giving and community involvement. Lori is a true Minnesotan and enjoys all things outdoors, such as hiking and kayaking. She also enjoys spending time with her husband, Dennis, and son, Dan. We are honored to have Lori Koutsky as our Community Grand Marshal.
Our Media Grand Marshals are KSTP’s Dave Dahl and Lindsey Brown. St. Paul’s own and Twins great, Joe Mauer, will serve as Celebrity Grand Marshal.
