The Lighting of Breckenridge
December 7th 2013- Tis the season, and Breckenridge comes alive during the Holidays like no other place on earth. A Victorian winter Wonderland comes to life before your eyes as the snow falls on the illuminated town tree behind the costumed carolers in our 150 year old mining town. The holidays are the perfect time of year to experience Breckenridge and we make it last all month long!
