To celebrate 30 years of St. Urho protecting the city of Menahga and Spirit Lake, a mojakka cook-off is being added to the festivities.


What is mojakka?

It's a Finnish-American soup that typically includes some sort of meat and potatoes. Like chili, there is plenty of room for creativity.

Priscilla Harvala, of Menahga, introduced the idea of a mojakka cook-off for this year's St. Urho Day celebration, March 16-18 in Menahga.
