Saturday, December 7, 2013 - Arli-Dazzle is "Probably THE LARGEST Lighted Christmas Parade in Minnesota!!" Over 95 Spectacular Lighted Holiday Units including Santa and his reindeer plus many local attractions. The parade begins at 5:30 pm but.... - Arli-Dazzle is a day-long celebration beginning in the morning with a long-time community tradition of Santa Day.  Children will delight as they share heartfelt conversations with Santa and Mrs. Claus and enjoy many activities and crafts.  As the day progresses, anticipation for the parade grows!  Main Street bustles with activities, the Arlington Fire Department will host the 2nd Annual Black Top Fishing Derby, there will be horse and wagon rides, and the Schell’s Hobo Band will entertains us on Main Street.  The Arlington Greys will play the Mankato Baltics in a competitive but friendly snowball baseball game.  Santa’s reindeer will visit us before the parade, and this year we added a Vintage Snowmobile Show.  Before you enjoy all the yummy foods from our local restaurants and food vendors, you may want to join us in our 1st Annual “Dash Throught the Snow” 5K!
