It’s great to be in Golden almost any time of the year. Many people discover Golden in the summer when tubing season is in full swing, but there are actually great things going on throughout the year. The Holiday season is no exception, as Golden goes all out with several Christmas and Holiday events that bring the town to life. The season kicks off with the Golden Candlelight walk, a highlight for both residents and non residents. Thousands of people pack downtown Golden and walk under the lights, sing Christmas Carols, and watch on the Washington St bridge as Golden turns on its Christmas lights for the season. It’s an event we do not want to miss as a family, and its a great time to get into the Holiday Spirit. Below are a list of several fun Holiday Events to try in Golden this season.
