Over the River Holiday Festival

Over the River Holiday Festival

Saturday, Dec 5, 2020 at 8:00am


Join us this year for a socially-distanced version of our annual community-wide Holiday celebration featuring a Santa fly-in, Toy Drop (get free gifts), holiday artisan market, Snowman building competition,  tree lighting, fireworks, drive-in movie, and more. Kick-off the day by shopping local and end it at the Regional Treatment Center with a drive-through lights display, fireworks and drive-in movie with the family!

Thank you to all who were involved in planning the Over the River Holiday Festival! We look forward to a safe and satisfying experience this year. So many local businesses and organizations are helping to turn Fergus Falls into a winter wonderland.
