Every year, just as the Thanksgiving feasting and Black Friday shopping frenzy have faded into memory for another year, the city of Detroit Lakes officially kicks off a month of holiday celebrations with Santa’s Grand Parade of Lights.


This year’s parade is set to step off at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 2, with the pre-parade festivities getting underway a half hour earlier.
