City of Saint Paul videographer Nick Nelson talked with Saint Paul Almanac publisher Kimberly Nightingale about the release of the 2013 Saint Paul Almanac, a travel guide to Minnesota’s capital city and a collection of community stories.
Also in the video, Joe Spencer from Mayor Chris Coleman’s office tells us how the city supports the Almanac and other arts through the Cultural Star Program.
Fun fact: Saint Paul’s arts and culture nonprofits draw 5.5 million visitors each year into the City of Saint Paul.
