A aerial view of the Pearl Street Mall and Boulder County Courthouse with holiday lights

Help us kick off the holiday season as we flip the switch that illuminates lights along the Pearl Street Mall, Civic Area and around the Boulder County Courthouse during Switch on the Holidays!  

Joining us to usher in the holidays with the annual lighting of the entire downtown will be youth and adult members of the Boulder Ballet, Santa, Mrs. Claus and downtown's very own Freezie the Snowman!  

Program starts at 5 pm and concludes with the flip of the switch at approximately 5:20 pm.  Outdoor visits with Santa until 7 pm. 

Come down earlier in the day to get a jump start on Find Freezie - you could get a mini-Freezie to keep plus you'll be entered to win a $25 Downtown Boulder gift card each time you Find Freezie in stores!

After the big switch, you'll also get to experience our ongoing self-guided holiday lighting tour for the entire season, as well as our brand new Snow Much Fun Virtual AR Experiences, presented in conjunction with the City of Boulder Parks & Recreation department!
