The Fasching Karneval and Parade this Saturday promises something for the whole family.
"We will emphasize and celebrate our German Heritage in Minden with the Fasching Karneval and Parade," said Pattie Odom, Downtown Development Director.
The Karneval will premier a carousel featuring a background painted in Germany.
"The parade committee is making a great effort to grow our family-friendly parade," Odom said. "Families are encouraged to set up along the route throughout downtown and enjoy the 'Karneval' until time for the parade."
In addition to staking out parade viewing spaces, residents and visitors can shop downtown and enjoy on-stage entertainment from 2 p.m. until the parade starts rolling at 5:30.
