ST. CLOUD -- Granite City Days continues to be a massive event with non stop fun for the whole family. Saturday had a big day full of events starting with the WJON 5K and ending with the Historic Pub Crawl.

At 8:00 a.m. roads downtown were closed off as about 150 runners ran in the WJON 5K. The fastest time clocked in at 16:00 minutes and the last runner finished in just over and hour.
