The Spirit of Christmas

Tradition, folklore, and chocolate…..that is what Christmas Opening  in Buena Vista, Colorado is all about.  You can expect to consume some yummy chocolate on the first Saturday of December.  Every. year.  You can also plan on Santa arriving in town by wagon in the equine parade.  No matter the weather during the day, you can expect the Parade of Lights to be a chilly but entertaining affair.    This is a small town, home town event, that even tends to draws folks from the front range because this is what memories are made of.  The local businesses depend on this day to end the year successfully and the locals depend on this event to create memories with their children, family and friends.   You can always expect to see Santa and probably a little bit (or lot) of chocolate, but no promises beyond that.  You’ll have to just come visit and see (again, the first Saturday of December) what we have planned.  This is the Spirit of Christmas and we love and believe in Buena Vista…..
