A CHRISTMAS CAROL THE MUSICAL
Downtown Golden Colorado
Clear Creek River View
started many years ago when a hundred or so locals gathered near the Foothills
Art Center to walk down Washington Avenue carrying candles and singing Christmas
songs. Word has spread throughout town, and now thousands show up, still
carrying candles and still singing, and still walking downhill from Foothills to
the Creek. When the group reaches the Creek, the Mayor flips a switch and all of
the holiday lights along Clear Creek go on, eliciting gasps of admiration and
much applause. Many groups participate in this event: there are crafts and
campfires at the Clear Creek History Park, roasted chestnuts and music at the
Pioneer Museum, musical performances at the Rotary Amphitheater (on the Creek,
behind the fire station), reindeer to be petted at the Visitors Center. All in
all, it's kind of a short (2 or 3 hour long) winter carnival. This event occurs
on a Friday night--generally the last in November or the first in December.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful Holiday Season!

family and friends.
