About the walk
The walk will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will end in front of the Golden Visitors Center for the annual Christmas showcase and lighting of the tree and thousands of holiday lights all along Clear Creek. During the walk you can listen and sing along with three different holiday songs starting with “The Little Drummer Boy” under the direction of Wildermiss and accompanied by The Golden High School 24th Street Singers and the Colorado School of Mines choir. The second song will be “Jingle Bells” so bring your spirit and bells to ring in the Christmas season. The third song will be “Here Comes Santa Claus”.
Then, stop by the Visitors Center after the walk to see Santa & Mrs. Clause, sip some hot cider and see this year’s special holiday ornament of the Music Hall at Heritage Square. Don’t forget to visit Clear Creek History Park to try a roasted chestnut and enjoy the trail of holiday lights. Hot beverages, cookies and entertainment will be provided at several businesses and cultural facilities.
