Lighting of Breckenridge December 7, 2019
During the first weekend in December, Santa makes an early visit to Breckenridge to light the Town Tree and help give Breckenridge its notoriously noted 'Christmas Town' look & feel. Celebrate with us by watching on as the sparkly lights along Main Street are lit. Join hundreds of other Santa adorned participants (dogs included!) in the Race of the Santas. And, cheer on the kiddos as they embark on their very own "Reindeer Race."
Then, after the last of the cookies have been consumed and the holiday spirit is in high gear, enjoy a FREE concert at the Riverwalk Center with Hazel Miller, belting out top hits from a variety of eras and genres!
