Denver Deal: Parade of Lights, Breckenridge Holiday Events, Free Days and more!
posted by: Gretchen
With Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday all behind us, I am almost ready for the holidays to be over – so I can hit the after-Christmas sales. OK, I’m joking there a little bit, but it does seem that this special time of year we are supposed to spend time with friends and family – yet, it flies by so quickly – that we don’t really savor the time that we do have. So this week, if you can squeeze in some family time with some fun events it is a great way to spend some time with loved ones.
Breckenridge celebrates Lighting of Breckenridge on Dec. 4. with cocoa, cookies, German -style market, carolers and Santa. The Holiday Market continues Dec. 4-5 and 11-12, with roasted chestnuts, hot spiced cider, mulled wine, visits with Santa and unique shopping opportunities along Breckenridge’s Main Street. Dec. 16-19 the 3rd annual Winter Dew Tour puts pro snowsports athletes on display including town concerts and plenty of nightlife activities. Specials include Nov. 29 – Dec. 19, 2010, groups of four can book a 2-bedroom condo for four nights at just $70 per person, per night, including all lodging and 3-day lift tickets for all. Other lodging packages are available for Thanksgiving and from Dec. 24 – Jan 2. Visit GoBreck.com or call 877.593.5260.
Downtown Denver will be aglow in lights this weekend. (The City and County Building is already lit up for the holidays so when you’re downtown enjoy that too!) for the Parade of Lights Friday (8 p.m.) and Saturday (6 p.m.). The parade is FREE. (The hot chocolate and Starbucks aren’t free).
Avalanche Tickets from Key Bank
How about 2 FREE Avalanche Tickets and a FREE SIGNED Jersey? Until Dec 15th, Key Bank is offering its new customers two tickets and a signed Jersey. Consumers do have to do a few things to qualify, like open an account, the Jersey comes 90 days after qualifying but you get the tickets the day you sign up. It’s the perfect way to get a great stocking stuffer for somebody at no cost, with a signed jersey just in time for Father’s Day. Two AWESOME gifts for no money … How’s That For A Deal?
