The townsfolk gather each year, the day after Thanksgiving, to regale the coming of Minnesota's longest season– Winter! This annual ritual experience is punctuated by the remarkable parading of ice fishing houses loaded on trailers, in pick-up truck boxes, or other means of conveyance on their way to the 365 frozen lakes surrounding this rural Minnesota community.
The craziness begins the Friday after Thanksgiving in downtown Aitkin as Aitkin's World-Famous Fish House Parade hits the street at 1:00 p.m. The parade was spawned from a keen sense of humor sharpened by dry Scandinavian wit and hardened by long Minnesota winters. A great day for the whole family! Remember to dress warm!
