Palo, Minnesota is only about an hour north of the Twin Ports and it'll be worth the trip this weekend for the Laskiainen Finnish Sliding Festival.

The event kicks off at 6:00 p.m. this Friday, February 2, with the Queen's Ball & Coronation.  Then, throughout the weekend you enjoy food, music, carriage rides and, of course, sliding.

It's worth the trip alone to see the Eelpout Singers, who perform Saturday and Sunday.
