Downtown Breckenridge street in greyscale

The official Lighting of Breckenridge countdown and the Race of the Santas have been postponed until 2021. Residents and guests can expect that the 250,000 LED holidays hung throughout downtown Breckenridge will turn on over the December 5th weekend and will continue to shine and spread joy all winter long. With the goal of dispersing downtown guests from Main Street’s narrow sidewalks and creating some extra outdoor space, a festival of holiday trees, decorated by community businesses, will be added to the Blue River Rec Path and remain on display throughout the month of December.
