(Aitkin, MN) — Big Changes are coming to the annual Fish House Parade in Aitkin but the event is still planning on running the Friday after Thanksgiving along Minnesota Avenue.

Aitkin Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Taylor Erickson has been hard at planning and informed us of the major changes.

Besides the biggest change of floats being parked and visitors going float-to-float, Erickson says there are changes with accompanying events…

The Fish House 5K will be virtual for 2020 and downtown stores will have set discounts throughout “Black Friday”. Safety and COVID-19 precautions are being asked of those float participants…

Erickson and the Chamber are asking visitors to limit their party size when checking out the Parade Floats and keep their social distance.

The Aitkin Fish House Parade, set for November 27th, will have more details coming out soon on the Aitkin Area Chamber’s website and Facebook page. We will have more information on the Fish House 5K this week with organizer Brian Anderson, be sure to stay tuned to Home Grown Local Radio and
