Oh Ole Night Parade, Tree Lighting & Fireworks
Oh Ole Night Parade, Tree Lighting & Fireworks

Downtown Grand Marais | Grand Marais MN

A quirky small-town Christmas parade featuring our Scandinavian heritage. This is Ole as in Sven & Ole’s, a parade throwdown challenge to all those of nordic descent to have the most Christmas spirit and win the traveling Gnome trophy and bragging rights for a year. Who will prevail – Norwegians, Swedes, Finns or another hearty folk?

Parade followed by Tree Lighting and Carols in Grand Marais, whatever the weather. Win some cold cash for parade entry! Parade starts at 5:30 p.m. on Wisconsin St. – we do two loops and then finish at Harbor Park for the tree lighting at 5:50pm, carol singing and fireworks at 6pm!

** Saturday, November 25, it’s Shop Local, Small Business Saturday throughout our county! **

Christmas Market

North Shore Winery | Lutsen

NSW’s first Christmas market will offer a variety of art, gifts, food, and wines – either to enjoy yourself or to give as holiday gifts for friends and family. The market will sell holiday decorations, art, art gifts, meats, cheeses, chocolates, maple syrup, and warm winter beverages. The goal is to eventually grow the market to include outside stalls like in France but this year, the event is going to be held in our barrel room where it is warm and cozy!
