Denver Mile High Holidays – LIGHTS, LIGHTS, and MORE LIGHTS!

Halloween’s over, which means the holidays are upon us. I know, I know – I’m early… don’t rush it. Whatever. I love the holiday season! They provide some of the best times of the year. There’s nothing like gathering with friends and family to celebrate new beginnings and holiday cheer.

To get in the spirit, I’ve scoped out the festive events of Denver Mile High Holidays. Man, does Denver love LIGHTS! Here are a few events where you can go scope out the spectacular lights this season:

Downtown Denver Grand Illumination – Nov 29 – Dec 31, 2013

On November 29th at 6 pm, Denver’s Grand Illumination event kicks off, lighting up downtown from Union Station to the City and County Building. Lights will be available and displayed nightly until the end of December. The initial lighting event on November 29th is a free event, and a great way to see this beautiful city aglow with the holiday spirit. This is a free, all ages event.
