Celebrate the holiday season with the Annual Festival of Lights Parade in Downtown Brookings! The annual event brings together several businesses as Hitch offers Letters to Santa, the Children's Museum of SD offers free play and cookie decorating, the Brookings Arts Council hosts the Festival of Trees and Historic Preservation Commission brings trolley rides. This year's parade theme is Dachshund Through the Snow. Santa is giving his reindeer a break this season and is turning to his favorite furry friends to help. Dress your pooch in those ugly Christmas sweaters or your best holiday garb. Decorate your floats as a doggy winter wonderland and let your pups prance in the parade. To enter your business to be a part of the parade, contact the Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce at 605.692.6125.
