Mandan turns on the Christmas lights on Main



Mandan, North Dakota – On Friday night, families in Mandan were bundled up for a major display of Christmas lights.

City officials were assisted by Santa and Mrs. Claus in turning on the main street’s Holiday Lights for this year.

Dykshoorn Park in Mandan began to be decorated last month by volunteers and local business owners.

Families are welcome to stroll around and strike up some amusing poses in front of the flashing lights.

The big light displays are sponsored by a number of Mandan businesses. Through January 6, all night long, the lights will remain on.

“There’s nothing like this type of display in the region, so it’s a great draw to Mandan,” Matt Schanandore with the Mandan Progress Organization said. “We hope that when people visit Mandan, they stop and get a cup of coffee at the local coffee shop, visit some of the small shops, and see Mandan in a different light.”
