A free family event now celebrating its 20th season! Once again it’s time to bundle up the kids, pick up the grandparents and head to the Target Holidazzle Parade. Every year since 1992, when the first parade marched down Nicollet Mall, over 300,000 spectators converge on downtown Minneapolis to join the sparkling fun. This year’s parade begins Friday, November 25, at 6:30 pm.
Thrilling the crowds on Nicollet Mall from 12th Street to 4th Street, Target Holidazzle continues Thursdays through Sundays until December 18. If you are really going to do this for free, come prepared: Bring something to sit on, proper winter attire and a thermos of hot cocoa. Also allow time to find street parking or at least bring enough money for a parking ramp.
