Holiday Tradition Parades Through Minneapolis Streets

No one does Christmas like Minnesota! Enjoy a memorable Christmas parade in downtown Minneapolis between 12th and 4th Streets by Nicollet Mall. Starting at 6:30 p.m., the parade features light up floats, traditional holiday characters, and some good cheerful music. It goes every Thursday through Sunday night from the day after Thanksgiving (Nov. 28) to Sunday, December 21. Remember to bring a jacket and some mittens to keep warm during this festivity. Although the actual parade is free, parking in the nearby ramps may not be, and a few bucks for warm hot chocolate or coffee might come in handy. Bring your friends, your special someone, and your family, and enjoy the holiday fun downtown!
