There will be several options for Cocoa, it’s in the name of the event for a reason you know. But, if you’re looking for something a little stronger than cocoa, you’ll be able to find a variety of “holiday” beverages that are likely to hit the spot.

And if you’re still looking for a gift or two, you might be able to find that as well while you’re in downtown St. Cloud on Friday. 

The event will be going on between 5 and 8 on Friday evening. As of Tuesday morning, the weather looks mild for Friday night, cloudy skies and a low of 34 or so. 

This weekend is the final push into the Holiday, here’s an opportunity to enjoy a few hours of holiday cheer before that push begins.
