State Fair history includes some unbelievable stories.

The Como Community Council’s annual Sunday Series is under way, with presentations guaranteed to entertain you, enlighten you, and engage you. All Sunday Series events are free; they run from 1-2:30 p.m. You can add these events to your calendar in ink (or whatever the digital equivalent is):

  • Minnesota State Fair History (Part 2). State Fair director Jerry Hammer picks up where he left off last year: He’ll share forgotten photos, facts, and stories about the Fair from the last 100 years or so – from 1920 until today. The  presentation is Feb. 25 in the Newman-Benson Chapel at Lyngblomsten, 1415 Almond Ave.
  • The Next Step: Pedestrian Safety in Saint Paul. Fay Simer, the city’s new pedestrian safety advocate, and Sgt. Jeremy Ellison, who leads enforcement efforts in the citywide Stop for Me campaign, lead the discussion. The presentation is Sunday March 18 in the upstairs auditorium at the Como Zoo and Conservatory's Visitors Center.
  • Crime Prevention through Landscape Design. Patty Lammers, crime prevention coordinator for the Saint Paul Police, gives advice about where to plant, where not to plant, and what to plant to make yourself, your family and your home safer. Sunday April 15 (location to be determined)
  • Como Park Tree Trek. Certified arborist and former Tree Advisory Panel member Tim Morgan leads a walk to help you better identify and understand local tree species, their health, and the diseases and pests that affect them. Sunday June 3 (meet outside the Como Lakeside Pavilion).
