The Christmas season is just around the corner in Golden!!  Yes, finally some cool weather, snow, Christmas lights and all the festivities that make this community so great!  As I was driving into Golden today I saw the crews out beginning the process of getting all the trees covered in lights for the season ahead.  By the way, the Fall Colors are still at their peak down by the creek!  Hop on the bike path and head West until the bike path turns to dirt and keep going.  This beautiful creekside trail is a highlight this time of year!!

Hello all, the holiday season is fast approaching here in Golden, and there are plenty of events coming up.  With its quaint historic charm, Golden is a great place to visit for some holiday fun.  There are activities for the whole familiy, including caroling, running races, shopping, parades and more.

Golden and the Neighborhood Rehab Project will be sponsoring a 5 k race called the Be A Tool 5k Run  on November 29th. The race will start at 8 am and proceeds will go towards the Neighborhood Rehab project, a non profit organization that helps disadvantaged homeowners fix up their homes in and around Golden.  Come out and run for a great cause.  The race begins at 8 am.

On November 29th, the city will sponsor a Christmas parade and Shop Small Holiday Event which will be held right after the race concludes.  All of the shops will be open, offering discounts, prizes and contests in downtown Golden.  This is a great way to get a jump on your holiday shopping and visit with other Golden friends.  At the Buffalo Rose Events Center, enjoy free gift wrapping and a visit with Santa Clause.

The Golden Candlelight walk will be held on December 5th at 6 pm.  This event is fun for the whole family.  Carolers gather at the top of the hill by the art museum, and work their way down Washington Ave with candles in hand singing Christmas carols.  After the walk, everyone gathers in front of the Golden Chamber of Commerce and Parfet Park for the annual Christmas tree lighting.  The city will also light all the trees along clear creek as well, and many people will spend time walking the paths along the creek to enjoy the  lights.  Feel free to grab some free apple cider or hot chocolate along the way, or stop in to one of the many shops to get warm or buy gifts.  This longtime Golden Tradition is one not to miss!

The Golden Christmas parade will be help on December 6th in downtown Golden at 11 am.  This parade will feature holiday music and dancers, along with elves on motorcycles, Santa Clause and much more.

Free Horse Drawn Carriage Rides will be available Dec 7, 14, 21 from noon to 4 pm.
