Christmas is coming and so are Estherville's annual holiday events, with the Parade of Lights/Chocolate Walk set for Nov. 15.
During this annual event, people are encouraged to visit participating businesses for chocolate treats and lots of holiday specials from 4-7 p.m. At 7 p.m., the Parade of Lights will take place starting from Fifth Street along Central Avenue. Enjoy the spectacle as local businesses and organizations show their creativity in lit-up floats. Prizes are given to the best and brightest commercial and non-commercial floats.
Santa Claus will be the final float of the parade, and he'll come back to Library Square after the parade to light the big, beautiful tree in the library balcony. It will be a beautiful kickoff for the holiday season in Estherville.
