'Kippis,' Cheers to St. Urho

mile 60.0

Lift your glass to this mythical Finnish saint who is cherished for leading the grasshoppers away from vineyards’ grapes. This is the perfect stop for people looking for something out-of-the-way, and a little less known. It is in Finland Minnesota. While the wooden carving of St. Urho is many feet high, keep an eye out, a leafy tree semi-obscures the statue from the road. When you’re done taking selfies, have a bite to eat in town.

St. Urho’s Day is celebrated the Saturday closest to March 16th. Finland offers up a hilarious beauty pageant, a parade, music, food and fun.
