Entries sought for DL parade
The Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce is seeking entries for the 2013 Santa’s Grand Parade of Lights, set to take place Monday, Dec. 2 in downtown Detroit Lakes.
Showcase your business or organization by creating a lighted float for this year’s parade.
Parade entry is free and open to all businesses and organizations, but the sign-up deadline is Wednesday, Nov. 20.
The schedule of events is as follows:
- Parade Pre-party and downtown shopping: Starting at 5 p.m., there will be fire pits, holiday treats and outdoor music all in the middle of downtown.
- Tree Lighting: The American Cancer Society will be lighting the large evergreen on the lawn of the DL Library at 5:15 p.m.
- Parade line up: Entrants will be assigned a location for lineup in the Holy Rosary and Zion Lutheran Church parking lots. You should be in places and ready for step-off at 5:30 p.m. The Parade will travel east on Frazee Street, one block to Washington Avenue, then two blocks north. This route allows for a slower pace and hopefully, more people to walk the route, even if the weather is not ideal.
- After the Parade: there will be an opportunity for Photos & Wishes with Santa in the Washington Square Mall.
If you would like information on sponsoring the parade, or signing up your entry, please call the Chamber at 218-847-9202.
