Christmas Time In Parker

Its my favorite time of the year and my favorite place to spend it is downtown Parker. I know right I could be in Hawaii enjoying some warmth but no I would rather be in my hometown, Parker Colorado.

You might need to bundle up to enjoy everything downtown but its worth every minute.

First we start with a kickoff to the holiday season with Mayor Mike's Christmas tree lighting at the O'Brien Park.  This park is really in the center of town and a favorite for my kids.  Before the lighting of the tree they have a whole lineup of musical entertainment including a small choir and a whole town sing-a-long of my favorite christmas song " Silent Night" before the magical christmas tree lighting.  They have popcorn and hot chocolate and apple cider you can purchase to keep you warm while you enjoy the festivities.   

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas downtown also provides a FREE ( yes I said it ... Free) carriage and wagon rides each Saturday after dark.  They have multiple carriages running at all times so the wait time isn't bad and many of the local eateries will bring out hot drinks for you to sip on while you wait.   I have lived in other larger towns and the christmas carriage rides are always a special event and usually quite a costly event.  I love that I can bring the whole family even grandma and grandpa to enjoy a carriage ride in downtown parker without costing anything.  Thank you to all the sponsors for this event.  

On December 12 at noon you can watch a marching band, horses dressed to the dime, and Mr. and Mrs. Claus in a Parade downtown.  If you stay after the parade you can also watch some ice sculpting down by local talent, enjoy a petting zoo for the little ones and pony rides.  Many of the local stores will be open so you can browse the local boutiques.  

Its a great month to enjoy some local venue and support the town of Parker for the holidays.  I promise it will be bring you joy and cheer!!!
