Parade of Trees

Parade of Trees – Open House on Sunday

The Murray County Historical Society in Slayton will hold their annual Parade of Trees Holiday Open House event on Sunday, November 30th from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Enjoy warm apple cider, hot chocolate and homemade Christmas goodies while wandering through the wonderland of Christmas trees. There will be special musical entertainment at the Dinehart-Holt house and museum throughout the afternoon during the open house.

This year there will be a tree honoring veterans and over 30 other trees decorated by community groups. Each tree has a donation jar nearby so you can "vote" for your favorite. The community group who has the most money in their jar at the end of December gets to keep the money. The rest of the money will be used for future Historical Society projects.

The Christmas trees will remain displayed throughout the season, starting December 2nd and through the entire month of December. The event is free, but donations are always appreciated.

The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
