Downtown Flandreau would like to invite everyone to participate in the Annual Holiday Parade. This year’s theme is “Light Up Flandreau” and the parade will be held Saturday November 26, 2022.
Line up begins at 5:30 pm on the south side of the Moody County Courthouse on Third Avenue.
The parade will take off from here at 6:00 p.m. and will travel west to Center Street, turn north to Second Avenue (Main Street), go east until Prairie Street before heading back south to Third where it will end at the Courthouse.
Categories are Families, Businesses and Organizations.
Registrations will be accepted until Wednesday, November 23 (the day before Thanksgiving). They should be sent via email to: [email protected] or by text to 605-864-1720.
Parade entry forms may also be picked up at the Moody County Enterprise or Bar X Bar.
A few businesses have committed to offering hot chocolate, candy canes, and cider that evening.
Prior to the event, children can pick up a Letter to Santa form to write down their wishes for him.
Before December 1, children should write their letter to Santa and then return it to “Santa’s Mail Box” located on the grounds of the park west of the First National Bank in Flandreau. Letter forms can be picked up at Maynard’s, River’s Edge Coop, Hunkake Cafe, Flandreau Flower Shoppe and Lewis Family Drug Store.
If you would like to join in the festivities please call Kim Hansen. A tree lighting ceremony and caroling will take place on the Courthouse lawn following the parade. This portion is sponsored by the Flandreau Holiday Committee.
Come join the fun with a parade entry or set your calendar reminders to come watch the parade.
