Today’s tip: Metro Transit offers free rides to Holidazzle Parade on Dec. 7 & 14

If your holiday traditions include watching the Target Holidazzle Parade on Nicollet Mall, consider taking the bus or light rail to downtown Minneapolis. Head downtown early or stay late for dinner or shopping.

In addition, the Northstar will add a special-event train for service to the parade on these Saturdays: Nov. 30 and Dec. 7, 14 and 21. Regular weekend fares will apply.
