City of Lights

If you're looking for a holiday tradition, bundle up the kids and head to Downtown Nisswa on November 29 for our City of Lights celebration! We will embrace the holiday season with dazzling lights that will adorn trees, fences, and buildings in beautiful Downtown Nisswa. The annual event begins in the afternoon with cozy horse-drawn wagon rides, photo opportunity with live reindeer, storytelling, delicious food merchants, warm bonfires, hot cider and mini donuts and strolling holiday carolers. The littles can share their wishes with Santa and the entire family can enjoy fireworks that will illuminate the crisp winter sky.
