Tomorrow, Thursday, is the parade and following it will be the return of the bonfire. For many years, safety concerns prevented the town from having the big outdoor fire that had been a fixture of the fest. But this year, the fire is back in Ullr. After the Ullr floats parade from north to south down Main Street they will circle back to the start and over to the Gondola parking lot where the bonfire will be lit. The exact location is the southeast corner of this lot, or directly behind Breckenridge Town Hall.
