Olde Golden Christmas on Parade - Dec 14

We will be walking in the parade with our group. If you have a cart, feel free to bring it & decorate it!  It would be great if the dogs and people in our group would dress up as well.

Parade check in will be located in the Golden Visitors Center parking lot at 1010 Washington Ave at 10:45 AM. At that time we will receive staging numbers for the parade. Please be on time - and plan to meet up with our group between 10:30 and 10:45. The entries will be staged along 10th street going West. 

The parade starts at 11:00 am, and will be marching down Wash Ave from 10th to 13th street, will turn right on 13th street and will end at 13th and Arapahoe. The entire parade should last approx 30 minutes.

Once we reach the end of the parade, you are free to go back to your car, or go back to Washington to watch the remainder of the parade.

Please park in the Coors Tech parking lot - on Jackson between 9th and 10th. I suggest getting there at least by 10:30am.

Olde Golden Christmas Parade

On each of the four Saturdays before Christmas, the Golden Chamber of Commerce hosts special Christmas events all day in the downtown area. Every Saturday morning starts with a parade. The parades last about half an hour and include Santa Claus, local bands, local businesses, local scout troops, etc. The Saturday activities continue with strolling musicians along Washington Avenue, free horse-drawn carriage rides, and tasty treats provided by the stores. It's fun, and it really does make Christmas shopping in downtown Golden even more appealing!

    Fantastic, Awesome, Wonderful!! So sad that we have to wait another 12 months for the next one. It was wonderful to see some new faces, and some we haven't seen in a while. Hope to see more of everyone in 2014! :-)

    Calendar update: I will be bringing 50 today - so if you've pre-ordered, please meet me in the parking lot before, or directly after the parade to pick yours up. We may also have some extra if you didn't order one. They are $20 each, and I can accept cash, check, or CC.

    See you soon!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday! We should actually have good weather! Please make sure you find us by 10:45 (parade begins at 11:00). To find us, ask the parade organizers (the ones w/ clipboards) what number we are - and find the number (look on the sidewalk where people are lining up).

    Don't forget to dress up & have fun!
    See you soon!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
