There is no place that captures the flavor of our community more than our amazing downtown. A top-rated regional attraction, the Pearl Street Mall is also Boulder’s living room - and downtown events are a critical and emblematic part of what makes our connection so strong.

As we come together to rebuild and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we humbly request that you join us in our efforts to bring back cherished events, like The Lights of December Parade, and help us unite the community back in our beloved downtown.

A month and a half long series of events, Light Up the Holidays includes the annual Switch on the Holidays (November 21, 2021) where the holidays are lit up for the season throughout downtown, FREE visits with Santa on the Pearl Street Mall, the City of Boulder's only holiday parade and downtown's own Freezie the Snowman's celebration Freezie Fest!
