About Osseo



One of the best Christmas and holiday celebrations in the Twin Cities, the Osseo Minidazzle is scheduled for the first Friday in December. Join us for this great holiday tradition that’s fun for the entire family!

The festivities kick off in style on Friday night with a light-filled parade starting at 1st Street NE, heading north on Central Avenue in downtown Osseo starting at 6:00 PM. Trees up and down the main street are lit with beautiful lights to give downtown Osseo that special holiday feel. The parade features fire trucks from the local Osseo Fire Department, as well as trucks from other area Departments. Santa will be on hand in Boerboom Park. Photo opportunities will be available so make sure to bring your camera!

A roaring bonfire will be on site to help keep everyone toasty warm. US Marine Corps Reserves will be accepting toys for the Toys for Tots donation drive. You can donate any new and unwrapped gift to the Toys for Tots campaign, and toys for all ages are welcome. Local Osseo businesses will also provide drop off locations for local families, as well as Osseo City Hall (donation box is located next to the Police Department door) providing yet another way to spread the holiday spirit.
