DeLIGHTS deadline Sunday, Nov. 27

The third annual Delano DeLIGHTS Holiday Lighting Contest competition will kick off Friday, Dec. 2, the day before Delano’s Old-Fashioned Christmas (OFC) begins.

There is no entry fee for those interested in participating in this year’s contest, but households have until Sunday, Nov. 27, to register their home for the event. From there, contestants will have five days to finish decorating their houses for the holiday season. Any home within the Delano Public School District boundaries is allowed to participate.

Delano’s Old-Fashioned Christmas is a Claus for celebration

There will be no shortage of holiday festivities at this year’s Delano Old-Fashioned Christmas (OFC), sponsored by the Delano Area Council for Arts and Culture.

What started in 2009 as an event to promote the work of local artists has now become a favorite local holiday celebration for Delano’s residents. The event returns Saturday, Dec. 3, and just as in years prior, there will be a wide range of activities for all ages.

“Old-Fashioned Christmas will really get you in the holiday spirit,” said Diane Johnson, spokesperson of the OFC Committee. “There is something for everyone of all ages to enjoy: from The Narren of New Ulm to the music performances, to the reindeer sleigh rides, and Christmas train, “Winter Wonderland” at the Delano Library, storybook characters, marble mazes, holiday shopping, and so much more. Top the day off with the Deladazzle Parade.”
