ABOUT THE CENTERPOINT ENERGY TORCHLIGHT PARADE
The Minneapolis Aquatennial CenterPoint Energy Torchlight Parade has been a longstanding Aquatennial tradition. As a flagship Aquatennial event, the parade continues to grow. The CenterPoint Energy Torchlight Parade is the largest nighttime parade in Minnesota. We’re excited to see you at this year’s event!
THANK YOU COACH FLECK FOR ROWING THE FLOAT AS THIS YEAR’S GRAND MARSHAL
The Minneapolis Aquatennial welcomed University of Minnesota football coach P.J. Fleck as this year’s CenterPoint Energy Torchlight Parade Grand Marshal. Coach Fleck became the 30th coach in Gophers football history when he was hired on Jan. 6. Fleck, 36, is one of the youngest and brightest minds in the game. He was named Mid-America Conference coach of the year in 2014 and 2016. He turned Western Michigan’s program around, turning a 1-11 Broncos team in 2013 during his first season into a 13-1 squad in 2016—winning the school’s first MAC championship since 1988 en route to a Cotton Bowl appearance. He was joined by his family on this year’s Grand Marshal float. Thanks to Coach Fleck for Rowing The Float! Ski-U-Mah!
