Hillsboro, ND — This Sunday, December 12th, downtown Hillsboro will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland with games, activities, lights and decorations, and of course Santa! Previously known as the Winter Carnival, the Hillsboro Business Association Winter Wonderland will offer families lots to see and do, including a number of contests and chances to win Hillsboro Bucks, according to HBA President JR Strom.

The event was previously centered around the Armory, but Strom notes that there was a strong push to bring those activities into the heart of downtown Hillsboro in recent years.

The Hillsboro Winter Wonderland Light Parade will take place Sunday at 5:30pm. Lineup will begin at the Hillsboro Events Center and end at Goose River Bank. $50 is Hillsboro Bucks will be awarded to the best parade float. Entries can also still be submitted for the tree decorating contest at Railroad Park anytime through December 11th. The HBA is also encouraging families to share their Winter Wonderland photos on Facebook using the hashtag #HWW2021. The top photo will also win $50 in Hillsboro Bucks.

All of this Sunday’s events in Hillsboro are free, but donations to the Hillsboro Kiwanis food pantry are encouraged. Some refreshments will be available for purchase.
