The holiday season in Boulder Colorado is officially kicked off! It may seem a little early, but Santa and the popular singing group FACE helped bring in the holiday season on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder tonight. The concert and Santa appearance were the precursor to the lighting of the Christmas lights on the mall, courthouse and the Flagstaff Star which will all now shine until after New Years Day.
As the countdown finally made it’s way to 0 the energy efficient LED Christmas lights reluctantly flickered on and the courthouse didn’t light for another 30 seconds. It was quite anti-climatic but quite funny. Overall it was a nice event that brought people together in a festive way. Way to go Downtown Boulder!
