There’s something so special about the holiday season in the Rocky Mountains. Twinkling holiday lights wrap around icicles, and stunning 14,000-foot mountains provide a background fitting for the North Pole.
In Estes Park, the holiday season is even more special — and it starts on the day after Thanksgiving. Instead of spending Black Friday shopping in crowded malls, Estes Park holds the annual “Catch the Glow” parade downtown.
The Catch the Glow parade features bands playing classic holiday tunes, dancers putting on energetic performances, decorated floats, and even Santa Claus. There’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit than to watch Elkhorn Avenue come alive. Plus, all events are free, so you can take the whole family along for the fun without worrying about the cost.
