**Also see Dec 1 and Dec 8** - Join any or all of the parades you can make it to!
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.
The parade starts at 11am sharp, and takes about 15 minutes to walk the route. You can walk back down the sidewalk to see the other entries in the parade.
Parade check in will be located in the Golden Visitors Center parking lot at 1010 Washington Ave at 10:30 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 10:15 and 10:30. The entries will be staged along 10th street going West. The parade 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.
Please park in the Coors Tech parking lot - on Jackson between 9th and 10th. I suggest getting there around 10:15am.

Olde Golden Christmas Parade
On each of the three 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!
