Grinchmas Drive-Thru
Friday, November 27
Bay Point Park in Red Wing
3 to 6 p.m.

The Grinch will be arriving in the Lenco BearCat, courtesy of the Red \Ving Police Department. "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" will be playing in the background. 

Just like the people of Whoville, your kindness can make all the difference. Plan to visit the Red Wing Police Department's Grinchmas Drive-Thru and enter the annual Act of Kindness contest. To contribute to making Red Wing an even kinder community--and to help grow the Grinch's heart--share or nominate an Act of Kindness story, or submit a drawing or poem that captures the essence of kindness.

Bring your camera to the R \VPD drive-thru selfie station and post your photo on your social media sites using the hashtags #RedWingKindness and #InnerGrinchLockedUp. Be a Cindy Lou and remain in your vehicles. Thank you.

Start spreading kindness immediately by locking up your inner Grinch.

Share or nominate an act of Kindness story, submit a drawing that depicts kindness, or send in a poem that captures the essence of kindness by email to or by mail to 

Red Wing Police Department
