So I was noticing all of the lights going up around town, now that it’s that season all over again. I secretly (or maybe not so secretly since I’m announcing it on a public blog) love the Christmas season and all of the things that come with it. Sometimes, I even like the music. So I began talking to a friend about this and was told that I have to head down to the City and County Building now that they had the official lighting last night. So we packed up their child, got all bundled up and headed down there.
Being new to the city, I thought this was quite the beautiful display. It created the perfect background for the Christmas spirit that is completely lacking in some other cities I’ve been to.
If you want to check it out, My understanding is that the lights are on until 9pm nightly (although we were there well past 9 and they were still on). If you’re new to town, the City and County Building is on the corner of 14th St. and Bannock in downtown Denver.
Next weekend, you will have two opportunities to attend the Denver Parade of Lights. This will be held on Friday, November 30th at 8pm and again on Saturday, December 1st at 6pm. The parade will start in front of the City and County Building and will follow the following route:
What a better way to get into the Christmas spirit; especially for those of us who will participate in their first holiday season in this beautiful city.
