Get set for the Holiday Decorated Vehicle Parade

MINNEAPOLIS — Help spread holiday cheer to veterans in the VA Medical Center and in the Minneapolis Veterans Home by participating in or watching the Holiday Decorated Vehicle Parade.

The Christmas-themed parade begins at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 16, with staging of vehicles beforehand.

The parade comes down Veterans Drive at the VAMC, then past the outpatient entrance, past the visitor entrance, past the Spinal Cord Injury Center, then back all the way around the hospital. The parade goes over Hiawatha Avenue to the Minnesota Veterans Home, circles it,  then returns to the VAMC.

To enter your vehicle, contact Greg Arrigoni at or 651-248-1604.
