It’s finally arrived - December! And with the Ski Season well underway and the snow piling up around every corner, December really does instill the spirit of Christmas and Holidays as soon as it arrives! 

Breckenridge has got some fantastic events lined up for December too! One of the most iconic of these has to be the Lighting of Breckenridge and Race of the Santas, scheduled to take place on December 8th. The lighting of the Christmas lights literally transforms the town into a dazzling holiday spectacular to behold! And why not bring along your best Santa suit and join fellow look-a-likes in a .75 mile dash down Main Street? Race entries cost $15 and all proceeds go to the Boy Scout Troop 187. Enter at https://www.runreg.com/race-of-the-santas. The day will also include other fun activities like making your own Christmas ornament, Holiday Dog Parade, Reindeer Run, Caroling Karaoke and you can even meet Santa himself!

Of course, there is New Year’s Eve… And there is no better place in Colorado to experience that than in Breckenridge!
