Grand Marais, Minn. – Nov. 8, 2022 –  The City of Grand Marais is searching for its next holiday tree for downtown.

The holiday tree is lit at the annual holiday kick-off event Oh Ole Night and lights up Harbor Park.

Oh Ole Night will take place Friday, Nov. 25, beginning with the parade through downtown at 5:30 p.m. If you'd like to walk in the parade or bring a float, please line-up at the senior center parking lot at 5 p.m. Tree lighting and fireworks will follow the parade.
