Canon City has it's Christmas Parade on Saturday....it really is a nice small town/mainstreet holiday fun!! For some reason, that doesn't make sense?Oh well...it's nice!!
I will have to second the Georgetown festivities!! I go every year...first week in December during my birthday. They have a fire ring of sorts on the main street..it's BIG..and,..people stand around and eat brats and stuff. Always a reindeer or two (real ones) and the shops are fun!!
It is a little Norman Rockwell....so is Breckenridge/my fave!! All lit up..just what one would expect a mountain town to look like!!! Really beautiful in the Colorado mountains this time of year!!!
Even though I grew up in Denver...I would recommend going somewhere in the mountains...at least the foothills (such as ice skating in Evergreen),,as opposed to the city!! JMO!! Magical!!

Ok want a nice taste? Beaver meadows resort, northwest of fort collins has a small ranch, that offers, Tubing, bonfires,snow shoeing, sleighrides to cut your Christmas tree, and more. I am not affiliated with them, just have been around there in the winter. They also have cabins, rooms, and condos. A bit of a drive but worth it for a genuine mountain experience.

Wish we had this in Miami...we'd melt with bonfires and hot chocolate...it's in the 80's here...

This Thursday in Pueblo is the United States Air Force Band Christmas Concert at the State Fair Events Center. Admission is free.

The Nutcracker is, also, going on in Pueblo as the Sangre De Cristo Arts and Conference center.

I am sure you have plenty of ideas for Christmas but you should definitely go to DOWNTOWN Denver (16th St. Mall) for New Years Eve! They shoot fireworks over the entire block and it is amazing for even the smallest of family members!

How are the Christmas lights at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo? Is it worth taking the time to go?

Haven't ever been to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo for the lights, sounds like a good idea though!!
My family always goes to the 7 falls ,..it is a beautiful ride on their elevator (all lit up) and they serve hot cocoa at the top! One needs it as it is usually very cold!!
