    REINDEER DASH
    NEW THIS YEAR! We will start the parade with a Reindeer Dash! We invite kids and adults to meet on the front lawn of Bremer Bank at 5:45 for their free antlers and jingle bells. The "Reindeer" will run/walk the parade route to announce the start of the 2018 Holiday Lights Parade. A priority viewing area at the end of the parade route near the tree lighting will be saved for all participants. A great warm-up to the coolest parade around! The antlers and bells are
    for participants to keep, thanks to JA Counter.
