Illuminating the spirit of the season in Glenwood

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – The historic Hotel Colorado is once again the sight of a day-after-Thanksgiving holiday tradition.

Tonight will see the Hotel Colorado light up the night sky with one of the largest lighting ceremonies on the Western Slope.

The lighting ceremony will be preceded by musical performances, including the singing of Christmas carols at the hotel.

Festivities are scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. When the lights are finally switched on, there will be more than one million holiday lights illuminating the night sky.

On Dec. 5, the festivities continue with “A Grand Holiday” celebration in downtown Glenwood Springs. Meet Santa Claus and a few of his reindeer, listen to strolling professional carolers singing holiday favorites, and enjoy extended shopping hours and special offers in the downtown shopping district.

“The Hotel Colorado Lighting Ceremony and A Grand Holiday Celebration are magical nights in Glenwood Springs. The events are free and bring people together, reminding both locals and visitors that the time we spend with loved ones is the very best part of the holiday season,” said Kate Collins, Vice President of Tourism Marketing for the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association.
