This event is great for the entire family and will provide plenty of fun. It will run from November 29th to December 21st. Kids can enjoy a visit with Santa and will also have the chance to ask for the things on their Christmas list. Moms and Dads can get the picture they want of their child with Santa, as well.
Lights of December Parade – 6pm
The parade is one of the favorites of Boulder locals and provides plenty of fun. This will be the 26th annual Lights of December Parade with plenty of floats from businesses and local groups. Bring the entire family and enjoy the entire event.
Even though the parade won’t start until 6pm, you can show up a little early for shopping and dining. You can also stay late to enjoy both or for a nightcap after the parade.
