Welcome to Arlington, home of Arli-Dazzle: Probably THE LARGEST lighted Christmas parade in Minnesota, Breakfast on the Farm, Fright Night on Halloween, and Chamber Night at the Ballpark.
Arlington, founded in 1858, has evolved into a great place to visit for family fun, friendly people, and so much more.
From its early German beginnings, Arlington residents have been known for their generosity and friendly hometown attitudes. We invite you to discover the businesses, attractions, organizations, and most importantly the people who make Arlington a special place to live.
We invite you, in particular, to check out the many various Chamber business webpages on the Members page (see above) of this website. Click on any business name listed in blue print.
Use the new electronic Parade Registration icon in the upper right corner of the Arli-Dazzle webpage for 2015 parade unit registrations. Follow the directions; all information goes to Kim Schneider.
