A Long Time Ago, King Boreas monarch of ice and snow, came upon a winter paradise known as Minnesota. Upon seeing a magnificent city nestled in seven hills, he proclaimed historic St. Paul as his winter playground.
Vulcanus Rex, god of fire and enemy of King Boreas, viewed the festivity with defiance.
Undaunted, King Boreas proclaimed the celebration take place in all royal houses and principalities. Fun and Frolic prevailed to the delight of Boreas and his queen of snows.
On the tenth day, the Vulcans stormed the realm. At the Queen's counsel, Boreas bade farewell to his winter home in the interest of peace. And so the frosty celebration closed once again as it has since its early 1886 foundings, opened the frigid gateway to another spring.
