Saturday, November 24, 2023: A smaller part of Gilbert Lake froze over.

Mark and Paula headed to Aitkin, Minnesota, to warm up, like so many others that day.

Soon, the Fish House Parade started with the Aitkin Legion leading the way.

Aitkin is known for growing turkeys.

A shark trying to get onto a fisherman's line!

Dancers were in the parade too.

ReMax was there with a fire display, but without their hot air balloon.

Then the Aitkin Fire Department arrived!

The Grinch was in a cage on display for the crowd. Booo!

One parade entry was shooting balls into the air.

Then there they were, Mr. and Mrs. Clause in a sleigh drawn by horses.

Quote of the day:    Winter is here!  Mark < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
