Lighting of Breckenridge - Bernese Mountain Dog Parade

Please note - this not a formal parade - but more of a processional with people and dogs alike. It is a very popular event - meaning there will be LOTS of people and dogs. This may not be a good event for fearful or reactive dogs.

    We would love to participate in this. We would be coming from Chicago with our Bo (16 mo. old Berner). Any recommendations on where we should stay?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
