This Saturday (Nov. 21) grab your family, winter scarves, mittens and hats and join Downtown Boulder as we Switch on the Holidays at 5 p.m. in front of the Boulder County Courthouse (1300 block of Pearl Street). With a little help from Face (all vocal rock group) and Santa himself, we will fill you with a lot of holiday cheer!
When Santa flips the switch, over 35,000 LED lights will brighten up the trees along the bricks and holiday lighting will illuminate the county courthouse and star on Flagstaff Mountain. Immediately thereafter, follow Tweedles the Elf over to the Ice Rink at One Boulder Plaza for Light Up the Ice - an ice show featuring local skating stars. Tweedles will delight you with her magic and there will also be face painting and balloon creations for all to enjoy.
Santa will be around for a few minutes to greet kids big and small but if you don't have a chance to chat with him, come back down for St. Nick on the Bricks (Nov. 27 and Saturdays from Nov. 28 - Dec. 19) from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Visitor Information Center (1301 Pearl St.)
Make a day of it! Come up early and peruse close to 200 retailers and over 100 dining establishments. Remember on Saturdays and Sundays (year round) parking is always free in the City of Boulder Parking Garages. Hope to see you in the heart of the city this holiday season!
