Anyone interested in joining is welcome to line up with signs and say thank you at the Winter Wonderland exit. People interested in doing so are asked to park in the lower parking lot off Excelsior Road behind the Lakes 12 movie theater and walk to the exit by the Northland Arboretum building.
The gates will be open from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
