What's happening in Downtown Boulder this holiday season
Downtown Boulder is getting ready for the holiday season. Twinkling lights are being strung from the trees and holiday displays are quickly going up. (Powell's Sweet Shoppe has a tree in their front window cleverly decorated with yummy ornaments on display.) In about three weeks, Downtown Boulder's Switch on the Holidays will happen followed by weekly Saturday visits with Santa during Downtown Boulder's St. Nicks on the Bricks. In a little over a month, Downtown Boulder's Lights of December Parade will get everyone into the holiday spirit.
Between now and then, come up here to enjoy our amazing fall weather. Newly planted flower beds add a splash of color (and a fond reminder of summer months) along the bricks. Experience for yourself some of the best shopping in the state (where 85 percent of the businesses are locally owned and operated). See why the Pearl Street Mall received recognition from the Camera's 2008 Boulder County Gold People's Choice Awards as Boulder's Best Shopping Destination. For the next two Fridays, enjoy a stampede like no other when CU's Golden Buffalos Marching Band and the CU football team get fans fired up during the extremely popular Pearl Street Stampedes.
Over the next several weeks there will be plenty to see and experience as Downtown Boulder celebrates the local and prepares for a festive holiday season!
