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, singers from the Boulder Chorale, 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.  Visits with Santa at the Downtown Boulder Visitor Information Center until 7 pm. 

Come down earlier in the day to get a jump start on Find Freezie - you'll be entered to win either a $25 or $50 gift card from participating businesses each time you Find Freezie in stores!  (Limit one gift card win per person.)

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