Can you believe it? It’s already that time of year in Colorado! Temperatures are low and the Holiday Spirit is heating up. The month of November is something that we look forward to every year, and not just for the turkey. Although a traditional meal is always much anticipated, November in Colorado is a great time to get out and enjoy some of the best Thanksgiving-themed festivities that the Mile High City has to offer. Whether you have family here or you’re coming in to visit, read on to find some of the best things to enjoy around town!
Mile High Holiday
- The city is coming to life during the winter holiday and we know the perfect way to kick things off! The Grand Illumination is downtown Denver’s largest holiday lights display. Featuring an appearance from Santa, food and drinks at Terminal Bar, classic holiday jingles from the Denver Dolls, and the official lighting of Union Station. Little ones will find endless entertainment! If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, head out to Estes Park and check out “Catch the Glow Holiday Celebration and Evening Parade”. During the day, you’ll find hayrides, shopping and lots of other age-appropriate activities, and at night the event is a beautiful color spectacle!
Mile High United Way Turkey Trot Denver
- Give back and bond with your loved ones when you participate in the 46th annual Mile High United Way Turkey Trot! Burn some calories before consuming your delicious Thanksgiving dinner and head home knowing your entry fee will help raise funds for Mile High United Way, whose work helps provide education, health, and financial stability for individuals and families in our community. Held in the beautiful historic Wash Park, this event offers families a perfect opportunity to have fun and show support for our city. Whether you walk or run, this event is one you won’t want to miss.
For those of us who are lucky enough to call Colorado home, there are so many things for us to enjoy all year, and this month is no different. If you’re like we are, this is arguably the best season and the thought of Union Station’s Grand Illumination also makes you giddy!
