The 20th annual Lighted Snowflake Parade will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19 in Cambridge.
All units will be beautifully lit for the upcoming holiday season and will include the Minneapolis Aquatennial, dozens of community floats from across Minnesota and Wisconsin, and local businesses and organizations. The parade will be less than one hour in length, so bundle up and enjoy some great family entertainment by kicking off the Season of Giving with “our own little Holidazzle,”
The route has been lengthened this year to provide more viewing on Main Street. The parade will begin at Second and Fern and proceed east on Second to Ashland, and then head south on Ashland to Third. From there the parade will head east toward Main Street and then travel north on Main, across Highway 95, and finish at the street entrance to City Hall and the City Center Mall. Jim and Trina Godfrey will announce the parade at the corner of Second and Main Street.
A Community Chili Feed will be held in a much more spacious location at the City Center Mall in the hallways near the Senior Activity Center from 4-7:30 p.m. Delicious Captain Ken’s chili and French bread from Herman’s Bakery will be available for just $4 per bowl. Santa will make his first appearance of the season at the Chili Feed from 4-5 p.m. and then again following the parade, so bring your camera.
Free carriage rides will board in the parking lot behind the old Ace Tack building from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and a decorating contest between downtown businesses will also take place. Stop in and vote for your favorite.
The Lighted Snowflake Parade is brought to you by volunteers and is financially supported through donations and proceeds from the Community Chili Feed.
