Oh Ole Night
A quirky small-town Christmas parade, with our Scandinavian heritage on display: the ‘Oh Ole Night’ Christmas Parade in Grand Marais.
This is Ole as in Sven & Ole, a parade throw-down challenge to all those of Nordic descent. Do you have the most Christmas spirit? Enter the parade to win the travelling Gnome trophy and bragging rights for a year! Who will prevail – Norwegians, Swedes, Finns or another hearty folk? Cash prizes for the winners of all our float contests!
Enter as a business or get your family together in matching sweaters and march in celebration! Have a cute puppy, bring it on down! Oh Ole Night is a night to celebrate the start of the holiday season. Come join in on the fun!
