The magic of the holidays comes alive on the Nicolett Mall in downtown Minneapolis… the twinkling street lights, the Macy’s Christmas display on the 8th floor and of course, the amazing Holidazzle Parade. This Saturday you and your family can experience this Minnesota Christmas tradition for free! MIX 94.9 and Metro Bus are giving you a free ride to the Holidazzle Parade on the Northstar Train.

You can join us and hop the bus at several locations around St. Cloud. The Northstar Link Bus will leave downtown at 1:45pm and make stops at the SCSU Miller Center at 1:50pm and the East St. Cloud Park & Ride Lot (just off HWY 10) at 2:05. We'll then make another stop in Becker at 2:30 and hit the Big Lake Northstar Station at 2:45. At around 3:06, the Northstar Train will depart and take us right to Target Field in downtown Minneapolis by 4pm. You can then walk up to Nicolett Mall, or you can hitch the Hiawatha Line and get off at Nicolett Mall for some shopping, dining and revelry before the Holidazzle parade.

The Holidazzle parade begins at 6:30p and  you'll have until 8pm to get back to Target field for the return trip. We’ll be back in St. Cloud around 9:30p

Peter K and his family will be hosting the ride.
