One of the best Christmas and holiday celebrations in the Twin Cities, the Osseo Minidazzle is scheduled for Friday, December 6 from 6 to 8 pm followed by Lunch with Santa on Saturday, December 7. Come enjoy this great holiday tradition that’s fun for the entire family!
The festivities kick off in style on Friday night with a light-filled parade starting at 1st Street NE, heading north on Central Avenue in downtown Osseo starting at 6:00 PM. Trees up and down the main street are lit with beautiful Christmas lights to give downtown Osseo that special holiday feel. The parade features fire trucks from the local Osseo Fire Department, as well as trucks are other area Departments. Santa will be on hand in Boerboom Park along with his Elves. Goodie bags will be available for kids. Photo opportunities will be everywhere, so make sure to bring your camera! A roaring bonfire will be on site to help keep everyone toasty warm. Additionally, the US Marine Corps Reserves will be on hand to accept toys for the Toys for Tots drive this year. You can donate any new and unwrapped gift to the Toys for Tots campaign, and toys for all ages are welcome. Local Osseo businesses will also provide drop off locations for local families, as well as Osseo City Hall (donation box is located next to the Police Department door) providing yet another way to spread the holiday spirit. For those who find the chilly weather a little much can head inside to the Osseo Community Center for warm treats and holiday music from 6 - 8 pm. Step inside to warm your hands and feet if needed!
