In Minnesota we don't stay indoors when it's cold and Christmas time is one of the most beautiful times of the year in Minneapolis.
The Minneapolis Holidazzle is a wonderful event to visit during the Christmas season. My husband, St Bernard and I hit the opening of this special event and it really was like walking in a postcard.
There are numerous tents with hand crafted items for sale, Christmas music, a beer garden and an ice skating rink. Grab a hay bale and hot chocolate and watch a movie.
The night we attended they had Fireworks and it was spectacular.
Check out Holidazzle if you can. If time allows, stroll down Nicollet Mall to see the vintage Dayton's windows. Our Saint Bernard loved the Santa Bear display!
