The 32nd annual Nisswa City of Lights Festival was a glowing success.

The event featured many traditions, including horse-drawn wagon rides; “The Polar Express” reading; hot cider, doughnut holes and crafts at the Pioneer Village; holiday carolers; Love Lights a Tree ceremony; and Santa’s arrival by fire truck at the gazebo in the center of town.

Children and adults alike were delighted by the presence of live reindeer, a new offering this year, and dozens of food vendors.

All of these events lead up to the lighting of the city using bonfires at 4:30 p.m., luminaries at 5 p.m., holiday lights at 5:30 p.m. and a grand finale of fireworks at 7:30 p.m.
