The Colorado Christmas Adventure is as much Christmas fun as one can pack under a single roof. For just one weekend, Friday & Saturday, December 7 & 8, this FREE event at Mission Hills Church, will feature Christmas stories and characters, a gingerbread house display and competition, live musical performances, ornament making, cookie decorating, food trucks and more. Hours are 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
Hear about the first Christmas — firsthand from characters like Mary and the Innkeeper. Hear about how the original St. Nicholas started the gift-giving tradition.
Walk through a delightful display of edible artwork, crafted into gingerbread houses from scores of families, groups, individuals and pastry professionals. Vote on your favorite. Judging will take place on Saturday at 10 a.m., with awards presented at 11:30 a.m.
Join in face painting. Choose a design, and with a splash of color we would love to add a festive touch to brighten your day. Ice and decorate your own cookie to take home. Each child can choose his or her own cookie and enjoy the cookie decorating process without the mess at home.
Ornaments are a visible reminder of Christmas memories, traditions, and the love families share. Create your own unique and multi-cultural ornament and put Christmas 2018 on the map of your family’s tree.
Listen to carolers, community choirs and school musical ensembles performing your favorite Christmas songs throughout the event.
Parents can browse through the Christmas Shoppe, featuring local vendors and craftsmen, to find the perfect gift for anyone on their list. Local food trucks include Rolling Smoke BBQ, What Eould Cheesus Do? and Basted Egg.
Families are encouraged to bring a toy to be donated to Colorado families in need this holiday season.
