Santa Sightings, Bar Bingo, and Holiday Lights Show: Weekend Planner for St. Michael and Albertville
Beat the heaviest snowfall this weekend by attending a daytime event Saturday, or brave the storm at an evening event. Wrestling tournaments are set for tonight and Saturday.
Although the weekend brings with it a winter storm watch in the St. Michael-Albertvile area, the heaviest snow is expected Saturday night. Luckilly, most community events this weekend happen during the day Saturday, in time to beat the storm.

The teams will also be at the Coon Rapids Dual Tournament Saturday at 9 a.m. competing against Coon Rapids; Ellsworth, Wisc.; White Bear Lake; Mounds View; Cambridge; Zumbrota-Mazeppa; and Lakeville North.
