    The Winter Nights & Lights Parade has become one of the brightest traditions within our area. St. Cloud’s Downtown will be transformed into a scene right out of Dickens. The event attracts over 8,000 people and takes place Saturday, December 7, 2013.

    This Annual Parade is put on each year by two non-for-profit organizations: The St. Cloud Downtown Alliance Foundation, St. Cloud Downtown Council and with support from our many sponsors and the City of St. Cloud. Over 50 volunteers are involved in the planning and execution to bring sparkling winter fun to share with the Community.

    The Santa Fun Run is a relatively new event, featuring a one mile route through a portion of St. Cloud's Downtown for people of all ages. The first 100 to register will receive a Santa Hat. Participants are encouraged to dress up in full Santa suits. What a fun display in our community to see several hundred Santas running down Germain Street!

    Claus for a Cause: We are also taking charitable donations of children’s books and gently used clothing for underprivileged children at the event for what we’re calling a “Claus for a Cause.” Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.
    The race is hosted by the St. Cloud Downtown Council (a member coalition) and the St. Cloud Downtown Alliance Foundation in conjunction with the Annual Winter Nights & Lights Parade.
