Take Metro Transit to the Target Holidazzle Parade! — Expired


If your holiday traditions include watching the Target Holidazzle Parade on Nicollet Mall, take Metro Transit for an easy ride to downtown Minneapolis.

This year’s Holidazzle season continues every Friday and Saturday night now through Dec. 21. See the Twinkle Bus, decorated with more than 23,000 LED lights!

This year will mark the end of the Holidazzle Parade. Organizers are planning a new holiday event in downtown next year.

Hop on a bus in your neighborhood or catch light rail at a nearby station. Head downtown early or stay late for dinner or shopping. The parade starts at 6:30 p.m.

> Learn more about the parade.

Special-event service added for Northstar

Northstar will add a special-event train for service to the parade on Saturday, Dec. 21. Northstar Link buses will connect with the Holidazzle special event-train at Big Lake Station. 

Regular weekend fares will apply on Northstar. Save time and buy your ticket or Northstar Roundtrip Family Pass online!
