Light Up The Night
December 10, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Free photos with Santa Claus, Hot Chocolate, S'mores, Fire Truck Rides, Santa Paws, Ornament Making, and more! Light Up The Night is an opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate the beginning of the holiday season each year. We will continue the tradition this year while we witness the Holiday Tree in Mt. Crested Butte come to life for the first time this season. After a few uncertain years we will once again join together as a community to enjoy music, hot cocoa, s’mores, and of course a visit with Santa! Join us in Mountaineer Square for an evening of fun and celebration!
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
