Menahga's annual ode to St. Urho is underway this weekend.

Chilly participants saluted their royalty Saturday noon.

The usual bar stool races and hilarity ensures Saturday afternoon, including a snow sculpture contest and parade.

Saturday night the festival concludes with a dance at 8:30 p.m. at the Menagha VFW. Club. Urho is the fictitious Finnish saint that drove the grasshoppers from the wine crop.
