The grand opening of "Home for Christmas" will be held at the Garber Bandshell on Friday, November 26, 2021, from 5-6 pm. It will begin with the lighting of Central Park that will feature a Victorian sleigh, tree lights, garlands, and much more. If you can't make it to the grand opening, you better not pout... you better not cry! This holiday display will be available until January 1, 2022, so make sure to tuck a trip to Osseo into your schedule before the new year.
The Christmas Parade is slated to start at 7 pm on Friday, November 26, 2021, in downtown Osseo! Make sure you get your visit with Santa in before/after the parade at Garber Bandshell too! Once you've made your rounds to all the holiday festivities, enjoy Osseo's food and shopping scene! Make a trip over to Norske Nook for a slice of pie, or Northwoods Brewpub for a beer, or Burly & Bucks for some delicious wings! Explore all of Osseo's restaurants and what they offer.
Osseo Lions present to you "Santa at the Cabin"! From 5-7 pm in Stoddard Park, drive-through and see Santa! Make sure the kids don't forget their letters! Bonus: Santa may even give you a Christmas goody bag!
Make another return to Garber Bandshell in Central Park on Saturday, December 11, 2021, from 1-4 pm for Holidazel Music In The Park! There will be music by Audio Adrenalin, a Candy Land-themed hot chocolate bar, family photo ops, and a lot more holiday fun! Before you leave the house for this event, grab a non-perishable food item or an unwrapped gift to donate to a child (0-17 years). The community is filling a 1956 Chevy Classic Truck with donations for the Tri-County Food Pantry and Christmas for Kids program.
