Festival of Lights

Santa is giving his reindeer a break this season and is turning to his favorite furry friends to help! What better combination is there other than man’s best friend and the holiday season? Dress your pooch in those ugly Christmas sweaters! This season isn’t just for us humans; pups like to celebrate too!

This year’s Festival of Lights theme is related to everything dog. Bring your canine companions out and show them off in their best holiday garb! Decorate your floats as a doggy winter wonderland! Let your pups prance in the parade!

Join us Saturday, November 30th at 7pm for an evening full of lights and laughter. Make sure to bundle yourself and your furry friend up, as the weather outside may be frightful! Also, make sure your furry friends are leashed! This is sure to be a tail-wagging, bark-tastic event!

To enter your business to be a part of the parade, contact the Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce at 605.692.6125 or fill out the parade packet!
