Event Description:
Annually on the Friday evening after Thanksgiving, New Ulm welcomes Santa to town with a Parade of Lights.  The 29th Annual Parade of Lights will be held on Friday, November 24th, 2017 at 6pm.  Over 60 units, brightly lit with thousands of twinkling lights, makes its way through our Historic Downtown. The historic downtown is lined with real Christmas trees, and real garland hangs from above. Children of all ages will delight in this event!

Note: There is no parking on Minnesota Street from 1st S to 4th N. This is for safety reasons as well as for guest experience.

This is a great time to check out our shops and restaurants before and after the parade.  Head to City Hall after the parade for the Official Christmas Tree lighting ceremony.  Mayor Bob Beussman will lead the ceremony with some help from the New Ulm Royalty and Santa himself!  Also, be sure you stop by the Brown County Historical Society Museum for their Holiday Open House after the parade and check out the historic Menzel Holiday Village display.  Gather your family and friends and get in the Christmas Spirit at this annual event!
