There is nothing quite as magical as watching thousands of twinkling lights illuminate the charming town of Breckenridge. This is the day we’ve all been waiting for-the day that truly begins the holiday season. Snow is falling, the mountain is covered in skiers, the restaurants are full, and people all over come to see Breckenridge transform into a real-life snow globe. Before the lighting, you’ll get to witness hundreds of Santas racing down Main Street.

At the 59th annual four-day Ullr fest, we’ll call on Ullr, the Norse god of snow, to ask for a great winter!

Come back throughout the weekend for comedy night and community ice skating!
