Carolers from Moorhead High provided songs of the season for the lighting of the official City of Moorhead holiday tree in Memorial Park.
Santa himself was on hand to hear Christmas wish lists in the historic log cabin. Young and old enjoyed the refreshments, music, and a few even helped direct the carolers.
After the sun went down, the festivities really picked up with the annual Holiday Lights parade thru downtown. The brightly decorated entries ran a course from 8th Street and Center Avenue in Moorhead into Fargo on NP Avenue and straight up Broadway.
Sponsor Xcel energy encouraged everyone to use L-E-D and other Energy Star rated lights. Candy was handed out to bundled up children and awards were given to the top three floats.
