Welcoming the Holiday Season with a Party!

We invite you and your family to visit us from 4PM – 6PM for warm beverages and treats, surrounding all of the fun festivities taking place on Main Street; including the Race of the Santas and Lighting of Breckenridge.

GoBreck encourage those who can withstand the thin mountain air to start at the front of the pack, as the top finishers will be awarded Ullr helmets and prize packages. Not a runner? Walk, jog or skip through the 6-block course. Your children can join you in the Race of the Santas where all kids will be given reindeer antlers. So come out and show your support, all proceeds benefit the local charity, Adopt An Angel. Registration is only $15 if you have a Santa costume or $45 if you need one (and you get to keep it).
