The Sauk Rapids Fire Department will be collecting toys from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the fire hall.

The Holiday Parade of Lights starts at 5:00 p.m. Morgan Thompson is one of the three Sauk Rapids Ambassadors this year. She says the day has been a tradition for her family.

When I was younger I went to the Sauk Rapids Parade a lot and we'd always sit at Jimmy's as a family and eat dinner and watch the parade.

The other two Sauk Rapids Ambassadors this year are Anna Lucas and Kaeleigh Rainer.

The event is put on by the Sauk Rapids Community Ambassador Organization.
