FFTC’s Guide to Local Parades in the Twin Cities

Parades are some of the best family fun in the summer. They’re free, you get candy, and it doesn’t take a lot of effort to show up and cheer. Bring a blanket or a chair –  oh, and some pillowcases for all the tootsie rolls you’ll be collecting. Some parade dates have already been set for 2020, and we’ll keep checking and adding.
