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 to Stillwater Native, X Games Standout Nicole Hause for being our 2018 Grand Marshal!
Thank you to Stillwater-native and X Games standout Nicole Hause, who was an excellent Grand Marshal of the 2018 CenterPoint Energy Torchlight Parade!
Hause was named 2016 Female Bowl Skater of the Year by World Cup Skating. Born in 1997 in Stillwater, Hause began skating at 10 years old after attending a friend’s skateboard birthday party. Her dad built her a ramp shortly thereafter, and at age 15 she turned pro.
Hause missed her 2016 high school graduation to participate in her first X Games. Since then, she placed first in 2017 and 2018 at Malmo, Sweden’s Vert Attack as well as first in the 2018 Vans Girls Combi Pool Classic Pro and first in the 2018 Dew Tour. Last year at X Games in Minneapolis, Hause placed fourth.
During her career, she has competed in the U.S.A., Sweden, Australia and Brazil. Hause is known for her big air, speed and powerful style on the skateboard.
“I am very excited to be the Grand Marshal at the CenterPoint Energy Torchlight Parade,” Hause said. “It’s great to be home, and being part of the Aquatennial and the X Games in downtown Minneapolis in the same week is going to be awesome.”
