SAUK RAPIDS - A mild December evening brought the community out and about for the Annual Sauk Rapids "Parade of Lights" on Saturday.

The parade, which began at 5 p.m,  included numerous floats decked out in Christmas lights. The route took floats and parade goers from 2nd Avenue at the Williams-Dingmann Funeral Home to the Harvest Fellowship Church.

The Sauk Rapids Fire Department was on hand during the parade as well, thanking all those who took time earlier in the day to donate to Toys for Tots at the Sauk Rapids Fire Station.
