From Thanksgiving until mid- January, the figures are replaced by a nativity scene. The surrounding park has benches and apple blossom shade trees.

This is very distinctive. It's worth looking on the New Ulm city page to find the listing, and then determine what time chimes will go off.

Located in Schonlau Park on the corner of Fourth North and Minnesota Streets. It is 45 feet high with figurines that come out and dance to the chime music which plays at noon, 3, and 5 p.m. daily...

Chimes and figures that rotate during the performance. The bells ring on the hour and the performance is a couple times in the afternoon. Located in a nice park with lots of benches.

Stopped here on our way through. A neat clock that chimes/rings at 3 different times; noon, 3 pm & 5 pm. The dancers spin and rotate. If you have 10 minutes, why not stop and take a look at it.
