Celebrity Grand Marshal: A celebrity guest of honor asked to lead the parade
2018 Celebrity Grand Marshal
Matt Birk was born and raised in the Macalester-Groveland neighborhood of St. Paul. He attended Nativity of our Lord Grade School, Cretin- Derham Hall High School, and a college on the east coast so uppity he refuses to acknowledge it by name. Matt has been blessed enough to play for the Minnesota Vikings in the past.
Matt and his wife, Adrianna, live in Mendota Heights, and have 3 beautiful daughters and plan on continuing to grow their family. It is unclear how Irish Matt is, but with his flaming red hair and willingness to participate in any celebration honoring St. Patrick, he gets the benefit of the doubt.
