Storm Lake knows how to “Mingle, Jingle, and be Merry”

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

STORM LAKE, Iowa (KTIV) – Storm Lake has hosted a holiday celebration every year for the past 27 years.
This year’s theme was “Mingle, Jingle, and Be Merry”… and the town did exactly that.

People started gathering in the streets early, in anticipation for the lighted parade.
Many used that time to check out the local shops, get some free cider, or pick out a cookie from the bakery.
There were letters to Santa, caroling in the streets, and holiday music filling most of the shops.
This event brought out most of the town- bringing an appeal to just about everyone.

“There’s just something here that you just don’t find other places. And I think that’s in our people. And I think events like this bring everyone together. It brings people out so that you see what Storm Lake…what makes it special.” said Holly Schipper, Sugar Bowl Gift Shop

Kids of all ages lined the street to get candy, or just simply wave at the lighted parade.
Until the magic moment…when St. Nick joined the celebration in style…while riding in the basket of a fire truck.
