The Osakis Chamber of Commerce is bringing holiday cheer to their central Minnesota lake town in the form of a holiday light parade.

This light parade will be taking place in town and will be on Saturday, December 4th. What makes this parade extra special is that everyone is welcome to be in it.

Tractors, lawnmowers, golf carts, cars, any vehicle you can decorate is welcome to be part of this festive holiday event. There will even be judging and prizes for 1st and 2nd place "floats".

There are no entry fees to be part of it, you just need to make sure you are registered with the Chamber of Commerce by Tuesday, December 1st. You can register and get more information on participating by emailing

With there not being a holiday light parade in St. Cloud, this might be a fun new tradition to start with the family. Osakis is a charming little lake town with really great locally-owned shops and restaurants. Spend the afternoon shopping there and in nearby Alexandria, grab a bite to eat, and catch the light parade to wrap up your day trip.
