And will be again, so St. Paul residents celebrated with a parade down the east end of the street that connects it to downtown Minneapolis, KARE 11 reports. And, hey, the even were happy to see traffic again. Can you imagine? Construction so bad, you're happy to see traffic?

It was the fourth annual parade for Unify University, the station reports, a group created to keep the neighborhood strong throughout light rail construction.

The the Frogtown and Rondo neighborhoods were representing along the new Central Corridor/Green Line, reports the Asian American Press.

Now that light rail construction is nearly complete, business is starting to pick up, reports KARE.
