Santa Comes to Grand Forks

Dec 2 is the day Santa came to town.
You can see him riding the last float in the parade video below.
The weather cooperated – Grand Forks got its first snowfall of the season just in time for the parade.

After the parade was the official switching on of the ‘tree’ and light display in Gyro Park. This year there are 3 trees.

A lot of people came out and enjoyed the events. Many are giving congratulations to the people who put all this on.
