FARGO — The Downtown Community Partnership has announced that the Xcel Energy Holiday Lights Parade will return this year, but the date will change.

Traditionally held the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, organizers announced this year’s festivities would take place at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4. The change was made in hopes that more of the community could take part in the annual event, both before and after the parade.

The parade was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
