Parade of Lights – November 29, 2024

Friday evening after Thanksgiving, New Ulm welcomes Santa to town with a Parade of Lights.  The 36th Annual Parade of Lights will be held on Friday, November 29th, 2024 at 6pm.  Over 60 units, all decked out with thousands of twinkling lights, makes its way through our Historic Downtown. Children of all ages will delight in this parade!  This is a great time to check out our shops and restaurants before and after the parade. After the parade, join Mayor Kathleen Backer as she leads the Tree Lighting Ceremony at City Hall. Gather your family and friends and get in the Christmas Spirit at this annual event!
