Grand Old Day Parade

Grand Old Day


We are very excited to, once again, be in the Grand Old Day Parade. We are even more excited that this year our very own Andy Gesell will be leading the parade as the 2017 Doc Chopp Award winner.

Annually the Grand Avenue Business Association presents their Doc Chopp Award to a Grand Avenue businessperson who has totally committed himself or herself to individual business success as well as the success of the Grand Avenue Business Association, Grand Avenue and thus, St. Paul. It is the most prestigious award GABA presents each year. The award is named for Dr. William Chopp, a dentist who practiced on Grand from 1946 to 1976 and who took a personal interest in the development of the Avenue. He was affectionately known as Doc Chopp.

This year marks the 45th anniversary of Grand Old Day, and it's a great way to kick off summer. We hope to see you there!!!
