There is no better way to kick off the holiday season then to Visit Breckenridge for the Lighting of Breckenridge and the Race of the Santas on Saturday, December 2nd. Breckenridge is already a winter wonderland so why not embrace the holiday spirit and help transform Breckenridge into a sparkling holiday scene.
There is a full schedule of events taking place on Saturday starting at noon with the Handmade Holiday Market. Come to the Old Masonic Hall on Main Street for an afternoon of holiday crafting and build your playing devices for the High-Country rendition of Phil Kline’s “Unsilent Night” procession.
A little later gather together for the Holiday Dog Parade Starting at Main Street Station Plaza at 3 p.m. to register your dog. Then march up Main Street with the doggies to the Blue River Plaza near the Breckenridge Welcome Center.
At 4:30 p.m. it’s time to don your best Santa suit and limber up for the Race of the Santas. Registration will be taking place in the Blue River Plaza starting at 2 p.m.
Next catch your breath at the Lighting of Breckenridge in the Blue River Plaza starting at 5 p.m. Be there when Santa turns on the lights and turns up the holiday spirit as he flips the switch in the Blue River Plaza just outside the Breckenridge Welcome Center at 203 S. Main Street.
Right after the Lighting join in Phil Kline’s “Unsilent Night” procession of Christmas music through town leading to the Santa! Then to round out the evening kiddos (and adults too) can visit with Santa at the Barney Ford Museum at 111. E. Washington Street and take a photo in the decorated Barney Ford house.
