Wow! What a great Santa Parade on Dec. 7. I’ve been attending this event for many years and it sure has grown over the years.

Hats off to all the “Elfie” work that was done to make it such a success.

Kudos to all participants who added to the festive air found in our great Grand Forks city the night Santa came to town. Lots of treats were available for Santa and parade watchers: candies of all shapes and sizes, hot chocolate with marshmallows, great variety of baked goods, lots of sales and a movie at the Gem. Wow!

It was very enjoyable being part of the hustle and bustle and excitement found downtown on Santa’s Parade night.

It looked beautiful with all the city decorations, twinkling lights, and there was even some white stuff.

This event is a must see for everyone, young and old.
