The 2021 Le Center Hollydaze Winter Festival will take place Saturday, Nov. 27. The Le Center Chamber of Commerce and Le Center Hollydaze Committee have planned the 21st annual festivities.
The Hollydaze Parade serves as kickoff to the holiday season. Santa will be here to light up the park. Organizers are asking everyone to join in the fun by entering a float in the parade or setting up and decorating a fish house. There is no entry fee, and prizes will be awarded to the first-, second-, and third-place floats.
To register a float or fish house, contact Don Hayden or Tara Nusbaum (507-357-6737) at the Chamber office or Matt Steffen at House of Insurance (507-357-2221) with questions or comments.
The Chamber is hosting the only Santa in the parade and at the end in the park. Organizers request that participants do not use a Santa Claus on any other floats (it can be confusing for little ones when more than one Santa appears).
Participants are requested to hand out candy or promotional items rather than throwing them into the crowd (this may cause injury). Throwing of any item, including candy, is not allowed.
Prior to the start of the parade at 5 p.m., Santa and his reindeer will be in the courthouse park, as well as the Schell’s Hobo Band, along with a feature performer this year, Celestial Circus, which offers fire and LED performers shows.
