Breckenridge is truly wonderful in December, with snow on the mountains, festivities in full swing and the holiday spirit on display everywhere in our special town, there is no better place to spend the holidays. The first weekend in December is the beginning of Breckenridge’s annual picture-perfect holiday transformation. There are so many fun-filled activities, you better start planning now.
It’s almost a sure thing that you will never have seen so many Santas in one place as you will when hundreds of Santa look-alikes race down Main Street. Kids of all ages can join in the Snowman Building Competition, and the younger revelers have their own fun run--the Moose March fun--on Main Street. Even your favorite furry four-legged pals won’t miss out as they parade through town in the Holiday Dog Parade. And everyone—locals and visitors alike—will want to be part of our wonderful traditions of the Lighting of Breckenridge, meeting Santa and a free Holiday Concert.
