Downtown Boulder, always a fun destination, really shines during the holidays. Festivities begin Sunday, November 19 at 5 p.m. with “Switch on the Holidays” when the Art Deco Boulder County Courthouse and the plaza in front of it (1300 block of Pearl Street) are illuminated. The Boulder Chorale, the city’s premier community chorus, sings in the holiday season.
Santa counts down to the grand illumination of the courthouse, the Pearl Street Mall and East and West Pearl. Stick around for FREE visits with Santa until 7 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to park for FREE in one of the five City of Boulder parking structures. Remember, on Saturday & Sunday, parking is free in City of Boulder parking garages and FREE on Sundays at meters.
