Strollin’ strollin’ strolllin’ at the Red Wing Holiday Stroll

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

The weather was perfect for this year’s Holiday Stroll. Well, perfect for late October, anyway, which meant that unlike in recent years, you could actually stroll around without your eyeballs freezing solid. Thousands upon thousands took advantage of the 50+ degree weather and came out to mingle, watch the parade, pet some reindeer and check out all the great specials in our local shops. Here are a few pics of the event. Check out our Flickr page for more!

Trunk or Treat was a creepy good time!

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Downtown Red Wing was overrun with chills and thrills on Saturday, October 29, as Trunk or Treat made its terrifying return. Hundreds of kids in their scariest, sportiest, and creative(est) costumes turned out to haunt downtown and skulk away with candy handed out from the trunks of cars decorated by local businesses and organizations. The Sheldon Theatre ran a kid-friendly a haunted house, Cornerstone Community Church offered a haunted carnival, pumpkins were carved in front of Lily’s and a 4H petting zoo made everyone scream in delight.

Trunk or Treat is a very cool event and you should definitely consider coming to Red Wing next year to get in on the fun. Until then, these photos should tide you over. Check out our Flickr page for even more!
