Downtown Boulder Light Up The Holidays

Freezie Fest

Saturday, December 8, 2018  |  11 am - 4 pm  |  Pearl Street Mall and Beyond

Join us for a celebration of winter and all things snowmen!

This year's first annual Freezie Fest will include visits with Santa (until 2 pm), free face-painting, train rides on the Snowflake Express, a free photo booth at the Capital One Cafe, performances by holiday carolers and The Guerilla Fanfare Brass Band and loads of holiday crafts and activities with our Reindeer Game participants along the Pearl Street Mall. 

Participate in Find Freezie (see below) for a chance to win gift cards, keep an eye out for Freezie himself for a photo opp and stay warm by the Seasonal Fire Table near the Visitor Information Center.  The festivities continue in the Civic Area at the Boulder Bandshell from 4 - 8 pm with Snow Much Fun (presented by the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department).
