The tour starts and ends at the Microtel Inn & Suites located at 5681 Bishop Ave in Inver Grove Heights. Santa will also make an appearance along the route. Because of COVID-19, Santa will be on the bus (the driver) in his own enclosed cab.

They'll have snacks and other goodies for purchase during your adventure. But, you're encouraged to pack your own adult beverages. All Is Bright Holiday Lights Tour has partnered with several local hotels to offer you discounted rates in hopes you'll make a night of it.
