Lighting of the Tree on Elk Avenue
Celebrate the wonder of the holidays this weekend in Downtown Crested Butte!
The Crested Butte Library will host a Polar Express Celebration for the family. There will be non-stop reading of The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg and continuous viewing of the movie. The Crested Butte Friends of the Library will be hosting a sugar cookie decorating station. Yum! Little ones will be able to write their letters to Santa Claus and the whole family can warm up with a warm cup of hot cocoa! Drop by any time on: Saturday, December 14th from 3 to 5pm
Following the Polar Express, watch the lighting of the big Christmas Tree on Elk Avenue. Festivities start around 5pm. Meet at the Crested Butte Visitor’s Center (corner of 6th Street and Elk Avenue). The UCC Choir will be caroling their way up Elk Avenue to the Christmas Tree in front of Brick Oven (between 2nd & 3rd Street on Elk Avenue). Santa will use his magic dust to light up the Town’s Christmas Tree.
After the lighting, have more fun at the West End Public House to decorate cookies, hot chocolate, and holiday cheer.
A great way to ring in the White Winter and Holidays!
