Fish House Parade Nov. 29 in Aitkin

The Aitkin Area Chamber of Commerce will host the 22nd annual World Famous Fish House Parade at 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29.

The parade is open to anyone who would like to enter a float with an ice fishing theme.

Other activities that day include a craft show in the historic Opera House at the Butler Building (301 Minnesota Ave. N.) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Santa and Mrs. Claus, along with Miss Minnesota, will stop by between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. to visit.

The end of the parade will feature the “Super Discount Ball Drop,” when the last float will shoot the multicolored balls into the crowd, giving attendees a chance to win different discounts at participating Aitkin businesses.
