Christmas in Glenwood brings new cheer this year

Staff report

Glenwood Springs has a new Christmas event from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14.

Christmas in Glenwood features carolling, games, holiday treats, horse-drawn hay rides and a visit from Santa Claus at Centennial Park, located at 901 Grand Ave.

"We're hoping to bring some old-fashioned charm to Christmas in Glenwood," said Tom Fleming, Executive Director for the Glenwood Springs Downtown Partnership. Parking will be available at both of the new parking structures located downtown.

The event features horse-drawn hay rides through Glenwood Springs, the Symphony in the Valley Brass Ensemble, "Minute to Win-It" games, holiday treats, a Christmas tree decorating contest and plenty of Christmas carolling. Perhaps the most exciting part of the celebration will happen when Santa Claus arrives sometime after sunset. Meanwhile, Colorado Animal Rescue is holding an adopt-a-thon at High Tails Dog and Cat Outfitters in conjunction with the holiday fun.
