ST. CLOUD - Several days of winter fun are in store for you in St. Cloud.

The Weihnachtsmarkts - or Christmas Market - kicks things off Thursday in downtown St. Cloud, under the new parking ramp.

Downtown Council President Pegg Gustafson says Friday you can join the "Empire Pub Run & Plunge". It runs from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
